Default Mac OS X on MSI Wind

Hey guys i just joined this forum and i am trying to install OS X on an MSI Wind i already have everything bought and installed but i was told that there was a Wi-Fi card that OS X would identify as Airport card but the guy wouldn't tell me what the card was. If anyone knows will they please tell me what it is or provide a link. Thanks

If you want to use Mac OS as an operating system, you need to purchase a legitimate Apple computer.

Tough, it is a breach of your license agreement to use non-Apple hardware with your Apple software. This will most likely cause your license to become invalid.

Who gives a crap about licenses, nobody reads those things anyway.

Well, if you go to IM, you'll see a section for hardware and drivers. Go there and see if they have a working driver for a certain wireless card, then see if you can buy it somewhere.

There are tons of working wireless cards, you just gotta see what chipset they are, and most nowadays are Atheros (or something...), which work just fine in OS X with very minimal driver tweaks.
