Chrome netbook on Dell Mini 9?

Waitin4CJ took OS X off our Dell Mini 9 (we were going to sell it, but no takers) and put Ubuntu back on it. I'd like to make it a Chromebook, if possible. Has anyone here done that successfully? If so, how? (Links, please.)

Not to derail your thread, but feel free to PM me your asking price. Also worth mentioning that decay…I think…was also looking for a cheap Dell mini.

To answer your question, you can build Chromium OS (open source version of Chrome OS) yourself or you can grab a compiled build from a third party. Here's a guide detailing the latter.

Any reason, you don't want to put OS X back on the mini and keep it?

We just weren't using it and want to get an iPad. Tiny keyboard. (I'm a touch typist; not hunt-and-peck.) Are those stupid reasons? Convince me to keep it! It's cuuuuuuute!
