I do not think Dell has released any detailed product specifications... so it is hard to tell.

Honestly, basically any machine these days is "Hackintosh-able" depending on your knowledge level and how much work you want to put into making the thing fully compatible with OSX

Obviously, I understand what you are asking... and it is not possible to tell yet because nobody knows the exact hardware specs. Once those are released (or leaked) then we will be able to tell the compatibility of the hardware with OSX and see if it is fully supported by OSX and how much "hacking" will need to be done.

That was the real link. Go look it up on Dell's website if you don't believe it.

There's no need to be nasty - I didn't do anything wrong.

I was not being nasty. I was actually being light-hearted and joking about it.

I can post the screenshot of my work content filter blocking it, if you want. hahaha...

And I explained myself above and said that the link was not an issue to begin with, but MyDellMini must add that extra jargon into the link (which is some MediaFarm crap or something).

I took out all that garbage and was able to get to the product page using this :

"www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspiron-11z?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs]Dell Inspiron 11z Laptop Product Details"

*EDIT* : seems as if MyDellMini is the one adding the jargon into the HTML links when they are rendered for the posts on the forum, because it automatically changed mine as well shame.... I entered it as plain text now.

Someone on another site that received their 11z stated that the manual says 3 hours for 3 cell battery and 4 hours for 6 cell. Oh no! If this is true I guess I will pass on this one.
