Dell might be hell to some people, but the latest update to OS X with it's recent increase in battery life, combined with that of the low cost of the Dell Mini 9, I must say it's very, very tempting to me!

I doubt if I will try it, because essentially I'm too lazy and too cheap to bother, but the idea certainly has got me thinking along those lines.

Who'd ever thought that OS X could run so swell on a Dell!
