I, too, dream of the Raon Everun Note running OSX

Chippy over at UMPCPortal just spotted something quite amazing, which sums up why some people are going a bit gaga over Raon’s pricey little netbook, the Everun Note.

First, see Adam K’s winning entry in a competition, held by Engadget in 2006. The idea was to design a great new Mac (“What would Jobs do?”)

Now, two years on, here’s the 3G-equipped Note, displaying an OSX screengrab.

I believe the phrase that young people use to describe the appropriate sentiment is “Do want.”

Unfortunately, getting OSX running on an AMD-based system is the “unified field theory” of hacking: get one part of it working, and everything else breaks.

    Cool computer, but the display needs less bezel and the shell needs reduced business to really ape the sleek look of the design competition winner.

    Getting OS X running on an AMD system:

    THAT’S IT! You have a fully working OS X installation on an non-Intel platform!! Ok so its missing the SATA drivers and the one network card. The network card issue is fixable, there are drivers. The SATA support is crappy though. In my opinion, that the fault of the manufacturers for making crappy sata controllers.

    So not only is it doable, but it’s been done, with stetp-by-step instructions, and it really hinges more on the SATA controller. The official specs only say UDMA66/100 support, which suggests PATA/IDE – if true, congratulations.
