Are you sure?it has a native resolution of 1280x800.

You won't get QE/CI, may be able to get it to display native resolution. Not sure what other hardware this has, may run into issues with ethernet and wifi, and such.

A really good detailed review and technical analysis here

it was a detailed review in some parts - did they really need over a minute to describe the cardboard box it came in and then the packaging inside?


I actually like the specification as a product and a big thumbs up for supplying it with Ubuntu, i'm still waiting for the Fusion powered netbooks though before i replace my Dell mini 9

I really can't see the reason for the price on this machine, I must be missing something.
It's too expensive for the processor, not to mention the lack of Windows. Single core Atoms really are on their way out as they struggle with anything complicated. Yes, it might be fine for simple web use but there are/were plenty of Windows machines available for less then £200 (£150 refurbed) with spec not much lower than this.
Proper full fat Intel Core2 dual-core laptops are available with Windows for less than £300 now and they'd be a much better choice than this.

So what if it looks like a macbook - If it doesn't run Mac OS, what's the point?
#11
What graphics chip does this use as the default Atom chipset doesn't support HDMI.
#12
"I'm assuming this is hackintosh ready... any ideas? "

Eh, I cannot understand the reasoning behind the title of this "deal". So you state hackintosh ready without even knowing if it can be?

That, and the fact that it is only supplied with Linux and so isn't particularly cheap, is the reason I have voted cold. I would ditch all references to Hackintosh. Mac or Apple as it is misleading.

Very expensive for what it is... around £189 would be a fair price for this.

Could be very good and useful to people though, if priced well.

Macubuntu!

Decent laptop, and I vote hot, but definitely *not* a Hackintosh by any reasonable definition - a change to the deal title would be in order.

hackintosh removed due to the fact that it cannot support OSX, however it does look almost identical to a MacBook so I don't see any harm in mentioning that.

don't recall seeing Apple mentioned before your post.

sheeesh. some people are just naturally grumpy. bet you're fun to be around.

I've seen a cheap Alcatel phone which looks like a Blackberry Curve, but it ain't a Blackberry.Do you really need to pretent you own a Mac? That's sad.

Easy man ... OSX is based on Posix - so if someone wants to buy a copy of OSX to Install on his/her laptop, there is no need to be judgemental.

Personally I have used all the three - recently recommended a MAC Powerbook for my boss, but I prefer Ubuntu/Win7 on the machine at home. I can understand someone wanting the finish of OSX on a good cheap laptop. Cost a bloody fortune to get the Powerbook (15") - almost 6 times the cost of the machine above. Give the guy a break.

Personally I think Wireless / Ethernet and Graphics are going to be problem if you are planning to use OSX on the lappy above.

nothing to do with being pretentious, the styling is appealing... or do you think that macbooks are fugly?

Anyhow, i dont have to pretend - i own a macbook thanks....

more miserable sods today i note.... anyone would think it's raining.

Nice but the Atom lets it down badly. I just got an open box Acer 3935 from SaveonLaptops for the same price and its a 2.4 C2D. Still a couple on there if people are interested.

People are voting this down as they think it is a netbook which it is not really.

Well, maybe a little grumpy; as someone who has been on the lookout for a cheap OS X machine for quite a while, this deal built up my hopes before they were dashed once again - thereby making me grumpy ;-)

I've absolutely no problem with you saying it looks like a Macbook Ultra.
