    I wonder if that's the machine that Apple gave early developers before they had their own Intel based machines.

    Dell has in the past expressed their desire to be able to sell Mac OS as an option on their computers. But it will not happen until Apple gives them the okay to do so (and that could be a big if).

    Don't read too much into this
    This is a support page, not a sales page.
    There are government and school contracts Dell has which they are contractually obligated to sell and support all computers under that customer -- this means that Dell resells Apples in those specific situations, and supports them as well.

    Showing it on the public support pages is a gaffe though, unless they are weeding out the Dell owners who have hacked OSX x86 and put on their Dells, in order to say "Sorry, no warranty for you, sucker."

    I agree, this is simply "much ado about nothing".

    LOL, thanks for the laugh- that last phrase cracked me up! :D
