A 10" display with a 1024x576 resolution? Are they completely bonkers or what? I love my OSX Mini 9 but with a 600 vertical res it is too small to browse through anything without scrolling, and unfortunately, two-finger scrolling is unavailable due to the hardware not supporting it. What they should do, and therefore probably won't, is release an update to the Mini 9 with the following:
- hardware support for two finger scrolling, or at the least a scroll wheel.
- a (way) better keyboard because the current one is a bit finicky
- make sure ALL the hardware is supported by OSX, and stop selling the higher-end laptops as Windows-only kit.
- improve the design. I like the way the current model looks, but the plastics are cheap and the whole machine is just un-exciting. Get your design dept. to give it a snazzy and rugged-ish look so that people feel they can just chuck it in a bag, and make sure they can do that.
In short, if Dell ensures that OSX can be loaded onto these machines with ease and full support (plant a few leaks on a forum or two about how to do it) so that if Apple decides it doesn't want to compete in the netbook space, all the OSX fans will rush out to get a Dell mini.
