Netbook with full multitouch (1 to 4 fingers) touchpad support?

30 July 2011 - 10:44 PM


It's been a while now that I started looking for a netbook to put MOX 10.6 on.

The specs I'm looking for are:
  • Battery life of 5 hours minimum
  • 9" to 10" screen size
  • Working QE/CI
  • Working USB
  • Working Audio
  • Working Sleep and battery indicator

But as a netbook is meant to be used on the go, one of the most important is complete substitute to as cumbersome mouse:
=> A touchpad that fully supports all multitouch gestures Mac OS X can offer (one to four fingers)

At some time, I was told MSI Wind netbooks had the closest Apple touchpad, is it still true?

Thanks for all help/advise you could offer.

Snow Leopard on Eee PC 1005HAG

25 September 2010 - 06:52 PM


I've been trying for about 2 weeks to install Snow Leopard on my netbook, a Asus Eee PC 1005HAG, which specifications are:
  • Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz
  • Chipset: Mobile Intel 945GSE Express, ICH7-M AHCI,
  • HDD: 160GB SATA Hitachi
  • RAM: 1GB DDR2 PC2-5300
  • Display: Intel GMA 950 on 1024x600 (WSVGA)
  • No Optical drive
  • Network: Atheros AR8132 (Ethernet Gigabit), Atheros AR9285 (Wireless 802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1

I've tried to follow the MacEee guide but for an unknown reason Snow Leopard won't install to internal SATA HDD: takes age to fail.
Installer log says something like:

no or invalid system receipts found on /Volumes/...

Error writing cache to/volumes/Mac OS/Library/Caches/com.apple.FindSystemFiles.plist
Failed to enumerate /Volumes/Mac OS/Library/Caches cannot prune......

I've managed to install SL wih and on an external USB disk drive: 2 partitions, one for the SL DVD Retail dump and another to install.

Seems stable but not totally.
Even from there, sometimes, Finder and Disk Utility doesn't find my internal drive...

Note: I have a available original Mac with Leopard install to help in achieving that SL installation.

Thanks for you help
