When I was in the market for a new computer, the LAST thing I wanted to buy was a netbook, until a friend of mine sent me a link to the Gizmodo article about the Hackintoshed Mini 10v. I decided to take the risk and buy the Mini 10v thinking if worst case scenario things don't pan out, I can always just return it.
I booted the Windows XP it came with and it was unbearably slow which had me worried because I was thinking if Windows XP runs this slow (and it's a much older OS) then Snow Leopard will run just as slow, if not slower.
Wow was I wrong! Since the initial install back in February I've never looked back. I absolutely LOVE this machine! I use it roughly 90% of the time for the majority of school/work related tasks and it's just so lightweight, convenient and surprisingly powerful.
Two weeks ago I upgraded the RAM module to 2GB, as well as the stock Hard Drive from 160GB 5400RPM to 500GB 7200RPM and this thing absolutely flies. My boot time is now on par/slightly faster than my friend's 13" Macbook Pro!
All in all, I would recommend to anyone and everyone that's looking for a cheap, powerful and portable computer, the hackintosh is the way to go!
