I just picked up a copy of the new Tesco Direct catalogue, and guess what I found?

Now I just have to work out which of these will and won't run OS X... Twisted Evil

Nice for you guys in the UK. I remember Tesco from all the times I've been over there. Good prices (for UK), good range of items, pleasant to shop (for a big store). I haven't heard anything about Acer or Dell netbooks running MacOSX, one way or the other.

It probably sounds strange that I'm getting excited about being able to buy a notebook from a food supermarket, but in my own experience, UK computer superstores (translation: PC World) tend to be manned by indifferent young men who stand around chatting to each other rather than serving customers. So any alternative is welcome! Smile

I've had a scout around the net and found a couple of videos that show OS X running on Acer Aspire One netbooks, but I'm still looking for tutorials that show how much effort is involved in getting such a setup to work...

- Leopard on an Aspire One A150 (complete with appalling rap music)
