I have a Vostro A90, running OS X 10.5.7. I run Office 2008 on it. I am also running WinXP in VMWare Fusion, off of an 8GB SD card. I am currently waiting for my 64GB SSD drive to get here, at which time I will move the VM off of the SD card. Windows runs slowly; I'm guessing due to the write speed of the SD card.
The Bluetooth works.
The network card works.
The wireless works..
The sound card works.
The camera works in iChat.
Thanks to the efforts of MechDrew and others, my Vostro runs OS X flawlessly.

As someone who uses OS X on both the 9 and 10v, both are very stable.
The 10v is brand new, as in I've read of people getting them Thursday, but I dove head first into OS X when I got mine yesterday.
The biggest issue I have had at the moment was audio, which was discussed above. The other issue, which didn't bother me, was that the initial config wizard doesn't run because of the resolution. Otherwise, I'm using DellEFI v1.1, and no issues so far. I did try 1.2a5, but seemed to be having issues. I haven't tried again yet, but I may now that I've got a pretty stable system.

i just installed 10.6.1 it has crashed twice on my in the last 3 hours, tells me that I need to hold the power button down to restart it in like 7 languages, I don't know if that is an osx error or what. using the netbook installer .83 with the additional audio kexts. I don't see a lot of this in the forums so it probably isn't common but thought you should know
