To the original poster, the ~$30 OS X DVD you see for sale will work for a Dell Mini install, when used with the appropriate guides and software found here and elsewhere on the Internet. Apple markets the installer DVD as an upgrade because it is intended for use on Apple hardware, which already comes with OS X. Don't bother calling Apple, because they're not going to tell you anything helpful other than "don't do that", especially since you'll be installing on Dell hardware.

Thanks so much. I've read a lot and think I'm prepared now. I do have a couple other questions. If I have an optical drive, why do I need to use the thumb drive to load the OS. Is it because I need the special installer program to let the software know it's a PC and not a MAC. After OS X is installed are there drivers for the external optical drive so I can do future upgrades using that?
