Hi folks,

I'm considering buying a Lenovo Ideapad S205 and I was wondering if anyone could let me know if this would work well under OS X? If so, my intention is to buy it and install OS X and use it as if it were a Mac (without Windows at all).

Many thanks for any advice. :(

I have partially success with Lenovo S205 using iAtkos S3 v2 SnowLeopard 10.6.3. Booting for installing and running is possible only with options: busratio=8 arch=i386 . I find drivers for network (wired and wireless) and work fine but:
- native resolution don't work (only 1024x768); I can't find a driver/kext for video card;
- sound work in headphones but not in speakers (I don't have any explanation for this).
After installing, can be made upgrade to 10.6.8 but USB and bluetooth don't work anymore. USB can be fixed (with #####) but I can't find solutions for bluetooth.

I also have partial success installing OS X on Lenovo S205 (E-450). I used Niresh L2 (I think) to install Lion. After installing I found most things to work except for the following:

- Native resolution doesn't work.

- The TrackPad isn't completely compatible as of yet with the tapping, multi-touch, and pinching not working.

 

Also, sometimes I get a kernel panic and I never know what the problem is. I usually solve it (temporarily) by attaching an external DVD/Blu-ray drive, but now and again it'll get a kernel panic. Still trying to figure this out...
