    I recently saw a couple of smaller netbooks (Dell/HP?) advertised by individuals on Craigslist or eBay who had somehow modded them to run Snow Leopard as their root operating system. I know Apple frowns on this but I didn't even know it could be done. How is it done???? That is pretty cool if you ask me. I haven't seen the iPad up close and personal yet, but an Apple netbook would probably have more appeal to the sweaty masses than the iPad IMHO.

    What do you guys think?

    Unfortunately for netbookers, OS 10.6.2 axed Intel Atom support AFAIK.

    I'm still running Leopard on a Dell Mini 9, waiting to see how stable the patches for SL were going to be.

    And a fix was released in the Hackintosh community within 2 days.:p

    But some netbooks have some quite easy to follow guides. As I recall either the Dell Mini 10 or 10V is quite popular and fully functional.
