Yeah sure, I will send you an Apple computer. What is your address, phone number, full legal name, social security, and credit card number?

they have emulators for that sort of thing

if you wanted xp, why didn't you just buy a pc instead?

You can install MAC OS on any PC, but Windows can only be put on PCs, Apple doesn't base on the x86 architechture.

Thank you for those who tried to help. Dreeeeeeaaaam on CarpeNoctem.

P.S. I like MAC's OS that is why I bought a Apple. I just thought it might be cool to see if I could run Windows on a Apple comp.
