Build Your Own MacBook for $425

I love my iMac, but sometimes I would like to have it with me when I’m away from home. Like many people, I think that a MacBook is a bit pricey. I’m so excited to have found a way to make a half price MacBook.

When I saw this video, I instantly knew I had to share it with you. After reading this article, you will have the knowledge you need to install Snow Leopard on a Dell Netbook.

As with anything that is as geeked out as this, in order to insure success, I recommend following the instructions on this video and http://www.mydellmini.com exactly.

You will need:

10 inch Netbook
Base Mini 10v Package: With Ubuntu – no need to buy Windows
(you could get the one with the SSD drive, but, of course, that will increase your cost.)
$299

External USB DVD Drive
