Welcome to

The aim of this website is to provide the most comprehensive resources and support for people who want to run Mac OS X on a netbook, backed by a community of enthusiasts!

Providing that your netbook has the appropriate hardware, it’s a fairly straight-forward process to get Mac OS X running. Check our Mac OS X netbook compatibility chart for an up-to-date reference as to which netbooks are compatible with Mac OS X, and which features work and don’t work on each netbook.

Please drop us feedback via the forum and we hope to make this website the number one resource for all your Mac OS X netbook’ing needs!

Would it be possible to add max ram to the compatibility chart? also, some kind of star rating so that those of us who are new to this might have a better idea of which netbook to purchase

The HP Mini 311′s trackpad is functional. It’s just that it’s detected as a PS2 mouse and not a real trackpad. Only lacks PrefPane in System Preferences panel.

I don’t have a netbook but a MB that has an Atom 330 processor like a Netbook.
