Default could you run X on this? - 05-04-2009, 01:59 AM ... QodjAhfBw&

Looks like a ruggedized Mini 9, any thoughts on whether OS X would work?

It looks like you can. It has the same cpu and gpu as the mini 9. You could try using dell efi on it, but it's specific to our audio, wifi, and network card, so if any of those are different, then you will have to find drivers for them elsewhere.

Dell Mini 9 | Mac OS X 10.6.5 | 2 GB RAM | 32 GB Buffalo SSD | BIOS A05
Dell Mini 10v | Mac OS X 10.6.5 | 1 GB RAM | 160 GB HDD | BIOS A06

I don't see them calling out the GPU.

499 w/ the touch screen, about the same as a modded mini, no?

I'm still holding out for a multi-touch-screen..
