I just want to thank the many excellent contributors on this forum for making the 10v Mini such an easy computer to hack!
My brother has a Mini 9 Hackintosh that I got to play with a few weeks ago, and while it was intriguing, the very small size + weird keyboard didn't really grab me.
My opinion changed after the Gizmodo article. Although I have a MBP, I really liked the idea of having a very small, pretty cheap Mac OS netbook that I could take with me pretty much anywhere. It also sounded like a very fun project, so I jumped in with both feet.
Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I now have a Mini 10v running SL 10.6.1. The system seems very stable, and I'm not having any issues to speak of. I've upgraded the RAM to 2 GB, added a BT
2.1 card (mine came w/o BT
), swapped in a 64GB SSD
, and upgraded the 10v trackpad to one from the Mini 10. After sorting out some typical post-install issues, I am LOVING the results. This machine rocks!
Thanks again to all of the folks who did the heavy lifting on porting Mac OS to this platform! You made it really, really easy for those of us that came late to the game.
