Dell axes hackintosh makers' favourite netbook

It's official: one of the most hackintosh-friendly netbooks, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9, is no more.

Dell has knocked the 9in machine on the head, preferring instead to point punters at the 10in Mini 10 and Mini 10v.

The latter offers the same spec as the Mini 9, but with a bigger screen and keyboard, and a 160GB hard drive. What's not to like? asks Dell.
