Dell has posted drivers for Apple OS X on some hardware -



What do you guys think? Typo, or is Dell going to start selling Apple hardware soon?

Looks like a photoshop.

The apple mac line is the only one that doesn't cleanly lineup. Could just be me.

Actually not a photoshop - just visited Dell's website, pulled up the X1, and it's a valid choice for drivers.

Here is a screenie - only a few possibilities atm...

Maybe they recognize that some people are using their computers to install an unauthorized version of OS X? :p

They're not apple drivers (It's very rare you even need a driver for anything on OS X anyway) apparently the download links to some .exe files?

I'd say it's just a typo, but it's not like putting "teh" instead of "the" ... it's a pretty big mistake to type out "Apple Mac OS". :)


edit Just had a look for myself. link

The drivers are all linked to .exe files... seems a bit of a mess up. The printer driver however is a proper mac installer. So it would seem it's just a typo, with the drivers being linked under the wrong product. :)

I wonder if it has anything to do with bootcamp?
The thing is Derek's screenshot shows drivers and firmware upgrades for the Latitude X1. Bootcamp allows Windows to run on Apple machines though. As it stands right now, there's no legal way to run OS X on a Latitude X1.

And as Dave said, the files are all EXE's, which is really weird. :D

It's nothing to do with bootcamp.

The .exe binaries included with bootcamp are Windows drivers for Apple hardware.

As I've already said, the files are .exe ... OS X does not run .exe binaries!
