    Re: Mac OS X on Intel

    Why would u need an OS X on PC? Even if you manage to install it'll run damn slow. The OS doesn't actually load it runs via Windows as far as I know. I'll need Windows to run a program which runs the OS X. Anywho, I haven't tried to do this on a PC but I have read some articles about it, maybe u can try this one: http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/...18/PearPC.html

    Re: Mac OS X on Intel

    I had MacOS X on my Toshiba Notebook before I switched to Mac. It performed quite well, better than Windows XP on the Celeron M Machine with 256 MB RAM.

    But: the Graphic Chip was not supported, so limited to 1024 x 768 (not a problem, since the monitor didn't support more) and the WLAN module was not supported.

    The problem of MacOS x on non-macs is that i will probably not support your hardware and there are almost no drivers out there. You might want to search Google for a site showing you, how to build your 400$ PC working perfectly with Mac OS. There you can see what hardware is supported.

    Re: Mac OS X on Intel

    The way this is setup now, you can run windoz on a MAC with bootcamp or Parelles, but it is hard to almost impossib;e to run OS X on a windoz machine. Lonestar is corrrect, if you can do it as he did it will not support your hardware and there are almost no drives for your PC with OS X.

    Hope it works out for you so you can do tech support.

    The mini's been Intel-based for almost a year now. I don't think Apple sells any PPC-based computers anymore at all.

    I wonder if Apple has ever found even one person gullible enough to buy such a machine? I had no idea the minis were that expensive!
    Tell me about it. And you get a 5400 rpm drive and integrated graphics. At least they finally bumped them up to core duos. I wish Apple would license OS X. It's a great OS that deserves to be used by more people. But they won't because it would kill their hardware sales. Oh well. The iMac is a better deal than the mini. I'm quite happy with mine, anyway.

    I had a PPC Macmini with 1 GB. Damn, that thing was slow. Especially when surfing multimedia rich sites. I used it for a week and put it on ebay.

    The Intel Mac MInis are not bad, but FAR to expesive for what they provide. If you just need a PC, you get the same hardware at least 100 bucks cheaper.

    The only thing in buying a Mac Mini is if you really want to run Mac OS X on Apple hardware and are not willing to buy an iMac.

    With that in mind, all you needed was the MacMini.

    Keep in mind, too, that Windows can be run natively on these machines. (If you're willing to buy Parallels, you can run Windows and Mac OSX in side-by-side windows!) You really do have two computers in one. I don't think $599 is such a bad buy for this flexibility.

    My understanding is that quite a few MacMinis have been sold.
    I don't have a problem with the mini not having a keyboard or mouse - USB mice and keyboards are dirt cheap, and a lot of the people buying a mini have their own already anyway. (Actually, I think it was a clever move to leave them out, since it let them put the mini in super compact packaging that really emphasizes just how tiny the thing really is - and as much as some people might scoff at it, form factor is a selling point.) It just bugs me how much they crippled the computer itself to keep it from cannibalizing iMac sales. It's not going to do the platform a lot of good if would-be switchers come away from the mini thinking that all Macs are slow and painful to use, just because their first experience was with deliberately crippled hardware.

    If I could get OS X to run on my ThinkPad, I'd definitely install it. Somehow, though, I doubt it will support much of my hardware. Especially the Mobility Fire GL graphics it has and the 1400x1050 screen res.

    Re: Mac OS X on Intel

    Teacher was able to run Mac OS X on his laptop, he said the bad thing was that he needed to install the video thing on the program. He used some kind of Emulation program, but when he showed it to us in class he basically ran it, but he fixed the problem where it was maxing out his CPU usage.

    He used an Emulator to run Mac OS X on his laptop that was running windows. It ran smoothly with no lags or glitches. Better?

    BTW, the emulator was probably VMWare, same as noel used.

    OS X can often run well this way on a PC, but it tends to be rather slow under emulation.
    Yeah he used VMWare, first on his laptop than on his computer. When he ran it on his computer it was running just as if it was on a Mac, he even played video on iTunes as well.
