Re: Compaq presario f500 with osx?
The simple answer is that there isn't a simple answer. I have heard of people doing it but, i don't understand why. If you purchase a copy of OS X then try to install it on anything other than a Mac then you are breaking the EULA. Also, as xtremezx2 said you will have a tough time or it will be impossible for you to find some of the drivers for you hardware.
So as a beginning mac person myself, I guess the answer is GET A MAC and you will be fine.
