I'm going to be buying a Mini 9 and installing Mac OS X on it as soon as another coupon code comes around (can't believe I missed the last one by two days...). My main drive to buy a netbook suddenly is discovering the ability to tether my G1 phone and provide internet to it anywhere.
I read somewhere that the G1 can't tether to a Mini 9 running Mac OS if it has the stock wireless card, but it will work fine with the one that is more expensive. I know absolutely nothing about how the two different wireless cards differ and whether 802.11g is the stock one or not, but it's the only option on the Dell website where I plan to order (atleast for the Mini 9 package I'm customizing).
If anyone has any experience tethering their HTC G1 to their Mini 9 running Leopard, I'd appreciate any advice or comments concerning your experiences.
