    And I have firsthand experience with machines that run OSX just as well, and even faster, than genuine Apple boxes.

    i think you just got laughed at because you're posting on things that are like a year old... look at the dates dude..

    OSX on the Wind is almost flawless. The only thing I didn't like was the resolution issues.

    This is coming from my experience with a hackintosh dualboot MSI wind (netbook) with osx (10.5.7) and xp; I don't think speed limitations is an issue with installing leopard on a non-'apple optimized machine'. For reference, it runs as fast if not faster than xp on my netbook (with the intel atom processor) on almost every program (with the exception of the programs I can't use in osx, like autocad and stuff). There's tons of info on installing and fixing stuff at insanelymac.com and osx86project.org, or the previously linked wiki for osx86.

    I vote go for osx, I love it on my little netbook thumbup but good luck, as I have no idea what goes into putting it on any other laptop dunno.

    sorry just saw this. yes dualboot. the version i downloaded had all the driver packs pre-loaded so before the install i selected what i needed and let it do its thang. 45 later i was in osx with every piece of hardware working

    Do you dual boot it or is it your main/only operating system? Was it a b!tch installing of the drivers and stuff or did it all work as if it was out of box? Thanks for any and all info!

    Snow will run on an AMD hackintosh. The Intel only just means it needs to be x86 architecture and not Power PC.

    I haven't yet purchased one yet since I wasn't sure if it was going to work but I planned on goin with Leopard just because apples website says the Snow Leopard needs a MAC with Intel processor....

    I'm fairly good with computers. I've never had to take my computer anywhere to get fixed, I've always done it myself. Let me know what you come up with. Thanks alot Jay!
