bsenka, that's great to hear. The HP minis, to me, seem to be the nicest designed and most solid-looking PC netbooks around. When I first saw one, I was convinced HP's designers took a few cues from the MacBook Pro line. How much RAM do you have on your HP Mini?
intel iMac 17' inch - 2.0GHz C2D/4GB/1TB HD
Unibody MacBook Pro 15' 2.4GHz C2D/4GB/500GB HD/NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
iPod Classic 80GB Black
iPod Nano 8 GB (fatty) Black
iPod Shuffle 4GB Black
Apple TV 160GB
The HP 1035NR has the best keyboard (IMHO) of all the netbooks. The 1000HE with it's chicklet keyboard (like a mini version of the MacBook/Pro KB) is decent too, but the HP one was just the biggest/easiest to type on, IMHO.

Yea just get a used 12" iBook G4 or PowerBook G4, they're both compact, you get an optical drive, and for the most part they're more powerful than a lot of netbooks out there despite having 4 year old processors. A PowerPC G4 1.2Ghz can outrun an Atom 1.6Ghz EASILY despite the lower clock speed, and you get 6 hours of battery life with a new battery.
The only caveat is that Leopard is the end of the line for OS X upgrades on the G4s and G5s, but it's still less frustrating than trying to get Snow Leopard to work on a PC. I'd rather use Vista than go through that.
What is an old G4 iBook worth....
a few hundred maybe's?
Why not? It's in support of the commercial venture of MacWorld Canada.
I was under the impression that it was not legal to install osx on something that was not apple labeled, are you telling me it is legal? Or it is not and we are advocating breaking the license agreement?
