Want to know how the MSi Wind U100, Lenovo IdeaPad S10, HP 2133 Mini0-Note, or Gigabyte M912 handle OS X? Boing Boing Gadget has put together a chart showing how well 9 of the most popular netbooks run the officially unsupported operating system.
While hackers have been cramming OS X onto netbooks for months, the operating system commonly has problems with WiFi, USB, Ethernet, Bluetooth and/or audio hardware. The chart shows which netbooks are capable of running without any problems at all, and which will have problems in one or more of those areas.
If you’re tired of waiting to see if Apple will put out its own netbook, this chart will help you figure out if you can build your own. Keep in mind, the easiest way to install OS X on a netbook involves downloading an illegal disc image, but you can always ease your conscience a bit by purchasing a legal copy of OS X.
