    Think you're more likely to see the mini update then a netbook from Apple. Maybe come Macworld.

    I agree. If we ever did, it would likely be $800+. If a Mini w/ a 9400M ever shows up that would be an amazing HTPC. Finally could play h.264 rips perfectly.

    i want a mac mini...but i can build a c2d hackintosh for around $200. i only use my current hackintosh for visualhub. a mac mini would be used for that an also a little bit for desktop work, but not much more

    A netbook would be cool, but knowing Apple, it'd be priced pretty high for a netbook (I'd wager $500+?)

    I'll probably just get an Asus EeePC 901 or something and turn it into a hackintosh :hs: It isn't an ideal solution (wifi and audio don't work) but it beats using WinXP :dunno:

    Knowing apple, if they made a netbook, would you get it for, say $600-700?

    I've got my Acer Aspire One running OS X, and it's decent, but the SSD is just way too slow. I upgraded the RAM in it so far, and I think I'm going to throw an iPod hard drive in there. Also, I could put an Airport Extreme card in it for wireless, then I've got my own mac netbook
