Dell’s Mini 9, one of the earliest models of netbooks available (sounds like its been ages since it launched, but actually not!) has been hacked into a tablet with a touchscreen and motion sensitive capabilities. It runs Windows 7 and not Mac OS X, sorry Mac fans as touchscreens and Leopard just don’t get along together. Check out the mod in the video below:

There isn’t yet a netbook from Apple at the moment and as you will be able to recall on the post in which we wrote about netbooks which were capable of running Mac OS X, only the Dell Mini 9 and MSI Wind achieved full scores.
