I was doing some netbook research recently when I came across this  
article at Gizmodo about sticking OS X on a Dell Mini 9:

This prompted me to order one on Monday but now they've knocked £50  
off the price in a 48 hour sale so I've ordered a cheaper one today  
and I'll be sending the first one back! (It seems they can't cancel  
online orders but are happy to accept returns)

Installing OS X apparently works very well (even sleep/hibernation is  
supported) and being able to install TextMate will make this the  
perfect development machine for when I'm away from home. It's a bit OT  
for this list but if anyone's interested in how well this turns out,  
feel free to contact me directly and I'll let you know.
