Hi!
Is it possible to install ML on the D430? The main thing Im worried about is the GMA 950 video accel. My Acer Aspire One D250 has the same GPU and that works fine. Sooo.... Will this work ok under ML? I dont care about replacing WIFI.

Hello, I don't suspect it will take ML, but probably 10.7. Here's where your answer will be--->http://www.osxlatitu...sx-and-windows/

Well its a C2D so I assume its 64Bit. Why wouldn't it take ML?

The best performance you can get with GMA950 is with Snow Leopard. Lion would be less desirable. The reason is GMA950 driver. There is no 64-bit driver (AFAIK).

Argh damn that sucks.
Are there any sub £200 lapotps that are 13 inches downward which have full GPU support under OSX?
COmpanies aren't making any Netbooks anymore and if they do they dont have any GPU compatibility.

You may check this two pages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_book
http://en.wikipedia....iki/MacBook_Pro

Check the specs and try to find anything similar (CPU/VGA/Chipset)... IMO the only way to be sure.
