While the Dell Inspiron Mini 10v may not be as easy to install OS X on as the Inspiron Mini 9, the newer model ges pretty decent scores in Boing Boing Gadgets’ OS X compatibility chart. So if you’re looking for a $350 mini-laptop to turn into a Macbook Mini, this netbook will do about as good as any. Of course, you can’t really just walk into a store and pick up an Inspiron Mini 10v with OS X preloaded. You’ll have to install it yourself.
But that hasn’t stopped one Best Buy from sticking a Mini 10v with OS X installed on display in a retail store, next to a tag that clearly states the computer runs Windows XP. Whether this is the work of a rogue Best Buy employee or the result of someone returning a hacked netbook that accidentally got turned into a floor sample is unclear. But it’s pretty funny either way.
