Default Dell Vostro A90 & OSX Leopard - 07-03-2009, 01:41 AM

Hello all, I'm very new at this so please bear w/ me. I'm looking at getting the Dell A90 for a netbook & putting Leopard on it. This is the Dell directly from Dell's site.

#1 Is there step-by-step directions to do it?
#2 Will the OS run just like on my Macbook Pro?
#3 Is there a better netbook choice for me?
#4 Can the hard drive be easily upgraded?

Here is the specs:
-Intel Atom 1.6GHz
-1gb memory
-16gb ssd
-Intel graphics 950 card
-OS in Linux version 8.0.4

thank you very much!

latest and greatest info on netbook installer.

I personally did the runcore install method. I couldn't ask for a better alternative to a MBP. My old iBook is sad now that its not getting the use its once did.

You are going to love your new A90 with OS X; I'm running a Mini 9 now, and with 6 "real" Macs in the house and at my business, this one is BY FAR my favorite. I can't say enough about this little machine. It is stable, fast enough, and everything runs just great. Mine has the 64GB drive, but my kid has a 16GB and is seems fine for email, surfing, and most other computing duties; the 64 is a bit of an overkill for most I'd suspect.

I also have a lonely MBP sitting here. It comes out when I need the big guns, but the Mini is king at my place.
