Video of MacWind

Tim Cook made it fairly clear that Apple didn’t want to compete in the Netbook space at this week’s earnings report.  We know you’ve been waiting for that Apple Netbook so we’re showing you the best/easiest substitute.  Tha MacWind (via CultofMac) seems to be a worthy paceholder until Apple joins this space – if at all.  MSI has been gracious enough to provide Mac drivers for their WiFi hardware so everything now works out of the box.  Keep in mind all of this Hackintoshness is a legal gray area so make sure you’ve bought at least 3 copies of Leopard in the past year like us.
