Lion won't run properly on a 32 bit machine. The new Finder in Lion is 64 bit only.

Maybe, but I haven't seen anyone pull it off with the Retail version of Lion yet.

I registered to his forum, under his Lion Announcement section, Labeled Lion Users Read First, this is item #4

4) Apple removed support for Atom CPUs as of 10.6.2. There is no support for Atom CPUs in Lion.

Several users of that forum have had success using the HP Pro-Book and a handfull of other models most in the $499 price range, but nothing on a Dell mini.
