    I have this exact model, and am currently working on installing OSX. I successfully installed 10.6.3 with iBoot legacy boot disk and 10.6.3 retail OSX disk. Audio and LAN are working fine, but ATI HD graphics are not supported yet - working in 1024x768 mode currently. I previously installed successfully with the Mammoth method of installation and had 1600x900 resolution but no acceleration. Unable to update to 10.6.7 successfully using either method. I will keep you posted on my progress. Let me know if you have any success.
