Up for sale is my Dell Mini 9. This is one of the easiest non-Apple laptops to Hackintosh since all the hardware is supported (wifi, sound, etc). I've upgraded the SSD and RAM from the stock configuration (see below).

I originally purchased it back in November 2010 and immediately upgraded to a 32GB RunCore SSD and 2GB of Patriot SO-DIMM DDR2 667 RAM. I followed this guide to install Mac OSX 10.5 (Snow Leopard). I used it off and on since the initial purchase as a secondary laptop (taking notes, surfing the web, etc).

Specs (upgrades in bold)
  • Processor: 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom
  • Storage (Hard drive): 32 GB RunCore Sold State Drive (SSD)
  • RAM: 2GB SO-DIMM DDR 667 (by Patriot)
  • Screen size: 8.9"
  • Graphics processor: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950
  • Video camera: 0.3 MP Front Facing Camera
  • Wifi: 802.11G
  • Ports: Ethernet (1x), VGA (1x), USB 2.0 (3x), 3-in-1 Card Reader (SD Slot)
  • Dell spec page: Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook Details | Dell
  • CNET Review: Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Review - Laptops - CNET Reviews
Other notes:
The RunCore SSD is great for Hackintoshing because has an secondary MicroUSB hookup on-board. This means you can easily install your OS of choice from any other machine (read: no issues with the lack of optical drive).

This computer comes with the original 4GB SSD (w/ pre-installed Ubuntu Linux), original 1GB RAM stick, and original packaging.

Here are the pictures.

Get at me.

Price: $175/OBO + shipping to the lower 48
