i've had a 10" asus netbook for a while, and i'm pretty much fed up with how slow vista runs on that machine, even with 2g of stock ram... and since pretty much all my other computers are mac's, decided to get a netbook that would be able to run the mac os with high compatibility. (as for the asus, will wait to intall windows 7, which i hope would run much better than vista, and dock it at home to use as the token microsoft unit)
just ordered a mini 9 off dell outlet last night
Inspiron Mini 9 (910) Laptop: Intel Atom Processor N270 (1.6GHz/533Mhz FSB/512K cache) No DVD or CD Drive Ubuntu Linux version 8.04.1
since my plans are to make it into a hackintosh netbook so i can use garage band on the road, i went ahead to order the ssd
/ram upgrade right away from ewiz.com
i went with the combo 2g ram/ 64g supertalent combo for $191.98, which after taxes and $15 coupon (laborday15) and free shipping, turns out to a tad bit under 195.00
since i still have a family pack leopard install unused.... and since i'm planning to buy the family pack snow leopard anyways (to upgrade my three other mac products) i think i'm getting a netbook that will be competitive with the macbook air for 400 dollars less...
do you think my current setup would work?
i've read a lot on this forum regarding extended batteries... which would y'all recommend??
thanks in advance!!
