Asus Eee PC 1000H: a perfectly wonderful netMacbook

One thing we're all pretty sure Steve Jobs has no intention of announcing tomorrow: an OS X netbook. But why do we need one when the Asus Eee PC 1000H can be purchased for $550 and hacked to run OS X. Tech writer Scott Gilberson hacked the 1000H to run Leopard fairly easily, and the performance is pretty good, on par with a MacBook. Unfortunately, the big issue is sound: there's no audio out. And the MSI Wind continues to remain the hardware for OS X netbook hackers.That said, it looks pretty great: I really love how fat and satisfying that dock looks on the tiny little screen, Get A Slick Mac Netbook for Less Than $600 [Cult of Mac]

    I wonder if anyone is gonna be able to hack the new Atom-based Dell Minis to run OSX. That would be totally awesome.

    None of the audio interfaces work? this is far from a “perfect” netMacbook. That seems pretty key to an apples functionality :-)

    Headline misleading.
