    Default OSX Tablet Netbook

    I am interested in buying a tablet pc, mostly because I want a "side computer" that I can use to take notes or diagrams.
    While I know that apple *may* be releasing a tablet sometime soon (?) I am considering other options in case apple doesn't release one, it doesn't run a full OS X or they decide to scrap the stylus.
    Since I only want it for simple stuff (safari, iwork, circus ponies notebook) I don't need anything powerful.
    I am looking for something up to 600 usd.

    The 2 models I've looked at are the Asus T91 and Intel Classmate, however I am not sure if I can run osx on them, have anybody managed to run hackintosh on any of those?

    Also, can you recommend me another netbook?

    Thanks!

    Hello,
    I am thinking about the same two candidates. What is keeping me at the moment is that I can't hold them in my hands for comparisons.

    From what I gathered the classmate is sturdier and heavier, while the T91 is sleeker.
    But the T91 has stylus/multitouch vs classmate stylus only.

    Classmate:
    Intel® ATOM™ processor N270
    1.6GHz Processor
    Intel® 945GSE
    1GB RAM
    16GB SSD
    6 Cell Battery equals roughly 6 hours usage (they say)
    1.25 – 1.45 kg
    2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 SD slot, VGA port, LAN, Integrated audio,
    built-in speaker and microphone , mic and audio out jack
    802.11b/g/n WLAN
    1.3 MP Webcam (that can be rotated)

    T91
    Intel® Atom Z520
    1,33GHz Processor
    Intel GMA (IGP) shared memory ?
    1GB RAM
    16 GB SSD + 16 GB SD + 20 GB online storage
    Li-polymer Battery roughly 5 hours (they say )
    0,96 kg
    2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 SD slot, VGA port, Bluetooth, LAN, mic and audio out jack
    802.11b/g/n WLAN
    0,3 MP Webcam

    I found this. Where a user described installing OS X on the classmate and got the touch to work with a driver (possibly this one, I can only speculate as it is not described in detail.)

    Here are a bit more complete specs for the classmate pc

    Processor Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz
    Memory 1GB DDR2-533 (1 DIMM)
    North bridge Intel 945GSE
    South bridge Intel ICH7M
    Graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
    Display 8.9" ITO touch screen with SWGA (1024x600) resolution and LED backlight
    Storage 4200RPM 60GB 1.8" Samsung SpinPoint ZIF
    Audio Stereo HD audio via Realtek ALC269 codec
    Expansion slots 1 SDHC
    Communications 802.11n Wi-Fi via Ralink RT3070 (USB)
    Input devices Water-resistant keyboard
    Touchpad with vertical scroll zone
    Camera 1.3-megapixel rotating webcam
    Dimensions 9.5" x 8.2" x 1.1" (241 x 209 x 28 mm)
    Weight 2.8 lbs (1.25 kg)
    Battery 4-cell Li-Ion 4800mAh

    After reading some reviews it seems that the classmate is a lot better with XP than the T91, also it looks like a better system.

    Thanks for the link I will try to contact the person from that forum.

    Is there any other candidate?

    That rumor has been there for a while

    Microsoft is also working on one and even have a video of how it is supposed to work (now if we can put on that.... )

    Yeah, rumor has been going for a while, however there are a couple of issues that make me consider a hackintosh tablet:

    -Apple is favoring touch vs pen/stylus: good for iphone, but I am not sure if I'll use a touch only device.
    -Price: 700 usd? it is an estimate, but for what I need maybe cheaper is better
    -IphoneOS: while that may be good (apple probably has some clever, useful, awesome way of using it) I want something more of a touch optimized OSX that runs normal apps + touch ones.

    Of course, I am basing this on speculation and rumors, so those arguments are not really valid, mainly I want a hackintosh tablet just for the fun of installing it

    Pretty much the same for me, and it got a physical keyboard, sometimes you just need one in my opinion.

    Did the person you tried to reach about the classmate answer yet?
