    get a dell and make yourself a hackintosh. there is a dell laptop out there that pretty much runs OSX perfectly. :)

    otherwise, you may want to check the mac forum.

    will the hackintosh fully support everything? I'm freaking stoked if it does. thanks for saving me half a grand!

    Theoretically any Dell or any other brand. Look up hackintosh and osx86. Most people today are putting it on the Dell mini's.

    see post above, Im not fully up on the latest news about the subject, but the short answer is basically yes. There are some small incompatibilities, but rest assured the internets are working hard to overcome them.

    Yeah, not sure. I just have Windows on my mini9. Here's a guide though and here's a forum for the mini9. There is a subforum that solely deals with OS X.
