im not a real fan of apple myself as i find the ipods over priced and just not as good as some of the rivals and the mac's just to expensive.

a mate of mine is a big fan of apple has a macbook and keeps reminding me that he can install xp on his mac. :O hes good aint he :rolleyes:

so after a bit of research i found that you can install mac osx onto your windows machine so below is a video of my laptop (1.4Ghz , 1024Gb ram 40Gb harddrive intergrated gfx) running and booting between XP Ubuntu and OSX

the OSX is after the ubuntu so hang on in there

i got the information from OSx86 Project | InsanelyMac

so let me know what you think about it and now i dont need to spend loads more on a mac :rofl:

You realize that doing that is not legal? You have to hack OSX to get it to bypass the ID chip on the Intel Mac logic boards, if you don't it will refuse to install or run. And you can bet that hacking the propreitary Apple code for the operatings system is most certianly illegal. Also, you would need your own copy of OSX to install, unless again, you are doing it by illegal means. That developer kit DVD they talk about is also illegal to install on a regular computer, they even state that right in the FAQ.

Given the lack of driver support for OSX. Although,... It has probably improved in the year since I've last heard.

Toma"y"to, Toma"h"to. While the post isn't exactly very worthwhile, the sentiment behind it is justified.

For many People Apple's are just overpriced "hipster" products. Like "Nike" was back in the day.

Yeah. I didn't say that it wasn't impressive, just that its not "forum appropriate". ;)
