everything runs quite well.
Apart from the internal microphone ... It does not work ...

A search of the forum yields several approaches.
  1. Get a USB headset /w mic and it will all just work.
  2. Look into the VoodooHDA kext
  3. A more elaborate fix.... Dell Mini 9 Audio with Microphone without VoodooHDA (Snow 10.6.2)
