OSX on Mini 9 - five months later - 05-06-2009, 09:30 AM
I've just written up my experiences of running OSX on a Dell Mini 9. I've been running Leopard now for five months with no problems at all - the mini is currently tucked into my rucksack on a round the world adventure.
Here's the article:

Thanks for the help in getting it up and running

Nice write up. I had a Dell Mini with Hackintosh on it until this week. It was a great little machine and for what you're doing, you need ultra mobility.
I have always had a laptop through work - Dells and multiple VAIOs - but in my recent job it wasn't part of the deal. I went the Mini because it was cheap and mobile and only found out it was Hackintosh'able by the Vodafone salesperson!!
Talked to my mate who made the OS X switch a while back and he put it on for me and I loved it. The only reason why I don't have the Dell Mini today is because of that very fact, I loved OS X so much but wanted a machine I could bear to use all day running it that I bought a Macbook aluminium 2.4GHz
I am still waiting for it to arrive, but some of the web dev tools on OS X rock, and I just wanted a decent sized screen which I was happy with using for extended periods of time. Plus the keyboard on the Mini was causing me soooo many typos, I was Mr. Parse Error's best friend for a while!
But, the Mini delivers everything it promises and I don't expect them to put a fully functional keyboard on something that damn small! Anyway, back to waiting for my Macbook to arrive :roll: Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
Current: Macbook 2.4Ghz aluminium .. with OS X
