Postby euan69 » Sun Sep 18, 2011 4:25 pm

Hey everybody, I Bought this new Netbook .. it's a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 ==> http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/dell/dell-mini_1018-duo-sm.jpg
I Like it very much & it comes with Windows 7 Starter .. I Wanted to Change that to Mac just because it looks Cool .. Like a MacBook :P . So, Does it have to be a specific kind of computers to run a Mac ? or Just my Dell can do it ? & More Importantly, since my netbook can't run Games & Also I Can't Aford any of the Apple Softwares for sell, is a Mac Good for Me ?

You need to start by buying a Mac. There is no legal way to run Mac OS on non-Apple hardware. The Mac Mini is affordable and can be used with your existing keyboard, monitor and mouse.

It is possible to install MacOS on a PC, but it's not as simple as you might think. You would need to do quite a bit of research before you got it to work properly, and you might not be able to get drivers for everything either.

Read up from these web pages to get an idea of what's needed:

http://www.osx86project.org/

Incidentally, you ought to know that it's illegal to install MacOS on anything other than a Mac, not that many people care but it's only fair to tell you.
