Default Dell 14z - 05-29-2009, 01:55 PM

i saw that dell has released the new 14z studio. i am by no means an expert on anything, but i noticed that it seems to use the same gpu as the new mac mini (nvidia 9400). you can also upgrade it to a 2.4Ghz processor with 1033fsb. now assuming that the other components are the same would this be a likely candidate for a hackintosh?

I'd be interested in the answer to this question, too. However, I spec'd one out and the cost was almost as much as the new white macbook so I think I'm leaning toward getting the mac. If the 14z ever came down in price, though and was able to run OSX...

I was reading about this laptop yesterday on Engadget (or maybe gizmodo?) Anyways, I immediately fell in love with the specs of that machine, it's like 5x faster than my e1705 and it's even cheaper!

Plus it is really slick looking, finally Dell is making some beautiful products!

-Dell Mini 9 - Refurb $269: Obsidian Black, 32GB STEC SSD, 8GB Kingston SDHC (left from previous owner), 2GB 667Mhz RAM, 1.3MP Camera, Bluetooth, Mac OSX 10.5.7
-Dell e1705 - New $1055: ATi X1400 OC/ed 175% faster, XPS 1710 Heatsinks, XPS 1710 Body
e1705 is old, it needs not to be upgraded, but rather be replaced.
