Best Netbook for OSX

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking for a netbook in the $200-300 range that is compatible with OSX.

 

I nearly bought a Toshiba NB505 tonight but could not find whether or not it was compatible.

 

If someone could direct me, looking for about a 1.66 gig processor, and a 250 gb hd, with 1-2 gb of memory.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Dell Mini 9 or Mini 10v. Search around for the Dell 1011 (not the 1012, since the 1012 has a GMA3150 chip so no graphics acceleration). The Dell Mini10v runs OSX flawlessly with 100% hardware working. Just grab a retail copy of Snow Leopard and the Netbook Boot Maker from Meklort.

I have been using an Asus 1201N-PU17 which does nicely. Going to sell it actually because I now have a genuine 13" MBP, but I highly recommend this model for a snappy and reliable OS X install.

I managed to get my Acer Aspire One 150 working fully, like the camera works etc. But when it's on battery the 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor gets locked at 800mhz and can't get any support on this forum to fix this issue. I'm assuming other Atom processor based netbooks are like this too.

I love my Dell mini 10v (1011) with Chameleon dual boot osx 10.6.7 and Win 7, but I want more horsepower or touchscreen, so.... The hardware compatibility chart would be much more useful with processor/geekbench and max ram columns. And a sorting option on percentage of compatibility or by column.

The best netbook is a dell mini 9 or Dell 1011

They both use intel gma x950. They are also sadly not avaliabke to buy new, but people sell them on ebay, for cheaper than your budget and an even bigger plus is some people hack them first. A Dell 1012 WONT WORK WITH IMOVIE OR RUN VIDEO WELL. INTEL GMA X3150(WHAT IT USES) IS NOT SUPPORTED.

Dell mini 10v is also great because EVERYTHING WORKS! It has a upgradable 1gb of ram and 160gb hard drive.
