hi all,

i would like to get a netbook to run snow leopard and ideally XP as well.

I have my macbook pro but i need something smaller and lighter. It will be used for email checking and iplayer, youtube etc.

Anyone know which works best with snowleopard?

Dell Mini 10v is the best, but it has to be the "v" version

The Dell Mini 1012 can run Mac OS X but it won't have all of the bells and whistles, as the graphics card isn't standard hardware for the OS and requires a couple of files to address (from what I've been told).

You might want to consider checking out this compatibility chart, which shows you which netbooks are fully compatible with Mac OS X - you might want to consider though purchasing a netbook with a 11.6" screen, as the 10" screens can be a bit of a pain after a while but it's all down to your personal requirements.

No probs, just thought you were excluding it from the mix.
