My son has been wonting a Mac for the last few months. He's been saving up for a Mini Mac thinking that this was his only option that was cheap enough for him to afford. Are you telling me that he could buy a laptop such as a cheap dual core Dell and some how run the Mac OS on it ?

Can you please give me more details and let me know if a cheap laptop would be good enough and if all Mac software would run on a Mac OS via a PC ?

well it is against apple policy to run mac os x on a regular pc, and sometimes the hardware isnt 100% compatible, so i suggest getting a real mac if you want to use it on a daily basis and if you dont like guesswork

It will run on PCs, but it's not easy either. It runs on Intel with SSE3 PCs. And...it's not 100% that everything works out of the box. Plus, there is something they use for a second core or whatever, to process DMG files. This is missing in PCs. Hence, you can't open DMGs.

Mac on PC is not a good idea.

Its possible and sonme people did it but it will run very slow and there is no point.

Just buy mac
