New to Forum,(Graphics Card)Differences betwenn EU Dell Mini and America Dell mini - 01-13-2010, 04:52 PM
I am new to this forum, but would like advice from you guys, I am looking to buy a Dell Mini 10 from the German Store
Inspiron Mini*10-Netbook: Produktdetails | Dell Deutschland
but I want to make sure that I am able to install OS X on it. I've read that the US Dell Mini 10 is not compatible due to the Graphics card is this right?
US site: Dell Mini 10 & Mini 10v Netbook Product Details | Dell
So in the German store there is no Mini 10 and Mini 10v, just mini 10 but apparently with many of the specs of the Mini 10v, but what throws me off is the graphics card that show under specs. I'll tell you why:
If you go to the link that I posted you'll see that under specs it states that it has a Integrierter IntelĀ® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 but after going through the process of personalizing it, it show as the graphics card this: Integrierte IntelĀ® NM10 Express Grafikkarte, I don't know if these are the same but with different names.
Ok if it has the NM10 it means that it has a newer chipset than the Mini 10v according to Intel's site
Intel NM10 Express Chipset - Overview
"1 17x17mm IntelĀ® NM10 Chipset is 85% smaller than the prior generation IntelĀ® 945GC chipset with 34x34mm GMCH and 31x31mm ICH7."
What I would like to know is if this graphics card is compatible to install OS X on it. How to tell?
If it is the Integrierter IntelĀ® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, the same question, how to know it is compatible.
Why do you think it shows diffent Graphics Card configuration once the process to buy it is finished?
Thanks for all your help, and hopefully here on the forums I will find a lot of answers to my questions once I get the Mini.

Also, does the WLAN work on this netbook? according to this:

The 10v doesn't have WLAN support. Thanks again.
