OK! Now We Are Success
The Hackintosh project has become a full-on win. Snow Leopard loaded perfectly and it's running like a champ. One thing left me rather taken aback though. Yes, I get taken aback on the odd day.
The Mini 10v has a three cell battery which gives me about in the realm of three hours of power with judicious use. So I thought I'd take a peek at the six cell batteries Dell has and holy poop! They sell those cells for $150. That's most of what I paid for the refurb'd netbook itself. That's insane. I suppose one day I might get an additional three cell but there's no rush.
I'm still not happy with the trackpad. But I have a nice USB mouse that works perfectly. Obviating the need to actually use the trackpad is a good thing.
