Hackintosh-Ready Netbooks Listed, Cataloged
Hackintosh lovers, this post is for you. BoingBoing Gadgets helpfully put together a table showing netbooks that have been tested with OS X. Of the ten listed, only the MSI Wind and and the Dell Mini 9 retain all of their functionality without the need for hardware swaps (the acquisition of drivers and other tweaking may be required). Of the other eight, the Samsung NC10 fares pretty well, but swapping the Wi-fi hardware might be too much trouble for the casual user. Same with the Acer Aspire one. The Lenovo S10 is only missing Ethernet functionality; as long as Wi-fi is working that should be okay for most users. The really intriguing one is the HP 2133 that has a big old UNVERIFIED banner across all five categories. Underneath you can see that each has a green disk, indicating that OS X works across the board. Hopefully it’ll be verified soon. You can post any updates, corrections, or additions to the post’s comments or e-mail them to the author. I’m curious to see if anyone tries it on a Dell Mini 12, myself.
