+1!! My 10v was a more sensible, cost-effective alternative to an iPad. It gave me a portable computing solution that made fiscal sense ($500 minimum on a machine I'm using to surf internet and check email while on vacation? No way). I get to keep the OS I love on my desktop and easily transfer all the files I want on my travel machine.

I installed OSX a few days ago on my mini and have been very impressed with the speed of OSX over Win7. Install was about 90 minutes using NetbookCD and my Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive. I don't have a Mac and have only 1 8GB USB Thumb drive, but I did happen to have an HD-DVD drive and that read the OSX disc just fine. My 8GB thumb drive currently holds my Win7 32bit install files.
