Re: mac on a pc
You mean you want to run OSX? Cant say "run mac". Like run a mac inside your machine?

What do you want OSX for? You can run a Vm and get it working with special modded ISO's and its legal if you own a copy of OSX.

What in OSX do you specifically need?

This. It can be done on the pc but get ready for headaches and many hours getting everything to run properly.

TN - As others have said, while this can be done, if you are truly interested in this platform, buy a Macbook or iMac. A Mac Mini would be the best bet and cheapest. You can find one of those on Ebay for cheap for a model or two behind.

That being said - It can be a fun journey/experiment to get to work right. VIN86 has one working perfectly and I have one on my PC I dual boot with Windows 7. I use them both.

This will get you started: http://www.osx86project.org/

would everything work if i virtualize it?

For the most part, yes. Occasional problems will creep up though, IMO.

Re: mac on a pc
I've seen a lot of decent looking ibooks (macbook minus camera I think?) around for short money, $2-300 or so with decent specs and thought about grabbing one to get better acquainted with Apples OS again.

No VMs for me this time around, and from what I've read about getting OSX to run properly on my Asus...no thanks. Too much heartache. Good luck with it TN.

Re: mac on a pc
Is there anything to stop dell making an osx compatible pc with less problems or would it just take an update from apple to bork it?

Re: mac on a pc
yes but not everyone has a million bucks to buy their stuff
