Apple Nano Macbook

A few rumours are circulating about Apple releasing the Macbook Nano netbook. This rumour was recently re-enforced when a source at LG in Korea leaked some information about a technology that Apple has purchased from LG.

The new Macbook Nano (as rumours call it) will have an OLED screen supplied by LG in Taiwan. Apple have paid LG $500M up front to work on monitor and display technology. The technology that LG owns means that touchscreens will remain without finger marks making them look ultra clean and crisp at all times. Regular touchscreens take oil and dirt from your skin and it sticks on the screen. LG have created a new layer added to the manufacturing process that can eliminate oils and dirt from getting on to the screen. Impressive stuff and well needed!
Another day, another MacBook nano rumor to hit the streets. This time round we even have a mock-up image of it. Strange – how did Korea-based LG gain information (or should we say, rumor) on this? Well, whatever the case is, we’re often drawn to gossip and rumors like moths to a light, so feast your eyes on the above. Many are speculating that this will come with an OLED touchscreen display that will definitely drop jaws should it be released. After all, we can’t expect anything less after Apple paid LG a cool half billion dollars in R&D money for the touchscreen technology.
To ensure you get the smoothest ‘Hackintosh’ experience possible, you have to first know which netbooks are the best ‘hackable’ candidates before you make a purchase. Currently, the netbooks most compatible for running OS X — when every component, from Wi-Fi to built-in audio, will be recognized by an OS X installation — are the following four:

    Dell Mini 9 (everything works)
    Vostro A90 (the OEM version of the Dell Mini 9)
    HP Mini 1000 (everything works)
    ASUS EeePC 1000H (everything works)

Close behind those four are the following models, of which OS X does not have the necessary kext for one particular component in each model. However, each of them can still be considered a suitable candidate for running OS X, depending on what you consider to be non-critical:

    ASUS EeePC 901 (everything except sleep)
    MSI Wind U100 (everything except audio input, though there’s been recent development in this area which may have solved this)
    Lenovo IdeaPad S10 (everything except Ethernet)

    Memory: 2GB versus 1GB
    Storage: 160GB versus 60GB
    Battery: 6-cell (5.5 hours, 56 watt-hour) versus 3-cell (3 hours, 24.4 watt-hour)
    Memory card reader: 4-in-1 (MMC/SD/Memory Stick/Memory Stick PRO) versus SD only
