    nice, i really like the way the HP mini feels and looks...I was going to get an MSI wind for this becaue I heard it's pretty easy and everything works on them....Is there anything you haven't got to work on the HP?

    The Dell Mini 9 with 16gb SSD is the best way to go for an OS X netbook.

    the only thing that isnt working right now is the microphone and screen diming function keys. i can upgrade to 10.5.6 and get the function keys working again. i just havent done it yet.

    I still don't see the draw of netbooks. 6-9" screen, keyboard for infants, no thanks.
