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.
That is the new Windows Starter Edition desktop.
I’d bet that it is just displaying a Mac OS X screenshot.
That’s really cool. I also have a hackintosh on my MSI Wind and it works much better than I expected.
I was bored in a BB a couple weeks ago and installed Ubuntu on an HP Mini 110. It only took about 20 minutes. I’m surprised they let these things go on the public intarwebs, what if someone threw a botnet client on them?
BB = Manhattan subway line?
Hmmm, what store is this an article about???….BB = Best Buy.
Doh… I suppose you were there looking for BBs for your Daisy air rifle. *<:o)
