    I was at Fry's today and they had a bunch of them for pretty cheap. I am not a computer dude, but I would make sure that it has Windows 7, not sure what version. Saw a 2gig with 250 gigs harddrive with Windows 7 (not beginner) for about 500-600. If you go the Fry's route do not buy an open box.

    Yes. OS X on a Dell Mini was my main Internet browser until I sold it and purchased an iPad.

    It will only work on a very limited number of computers. I don't know the particulars but I know it works with the Dell Mini 9 and Dell Mini 10v (not the Mini 10 though) because they use a graphics card that is used in a certain mac (and thus supported in the OS)
