Two opinions about OSX on netbooks, http://www.macsparky.com/2009/04/26/the-netbook-experiment/ and http://www.tuaw.com/2009/04/27/road-tested-why-the-hackb00k-is-a-fail/
I don’t agree with either, netbooks are about compromise and putting OSX on one (which in and itself is a different kind of compromise) will create issues. You have to decide if you can live with these compromises, in these two cases the answer was no. But i think the Dell Mini 9 is not the best starting platform, the complaint about small keyboards and limited disk space could be solved by selecting a netbook with a 10-inch screen and one that uses a regular (not solid-state) disk.
There are also complaints about software updates, and while it is true some netbooks are difficult to update other’s you can simply run software update. Other troublesome functions like sleep also work.
I’ll have more on this next week 😉
