Mac OSX Snow Leopard or Lion on my HP Laptop?

July 25, 2011 at 09:59:47
Specs: Windows Vista
I was wondering if I could turn my laptop into a hackintosh. Here's the specs:
AMD Turion 64 X2 2100 MHZ 2 Dual Core
4gb of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M
HP Pavilion DV9700 Notebook PC

Now I realize this computer isn't the best, and it's not my main PC fortunately, I was just wondering if I could get OS X on this and put it to use.

Be aware that it is contrary to Apple's license agreement to install any Apple OS on non-Apple hardware.

Agreed with LMiller7. It can be done via projects like OSx86 but note the following:

1.) You are technically violating the software license agreement with Apple by installing it on a non-Mac machine. and

2.) Since the OSX platform is obviously different from Windows, not all of your hardware (most commonly things like ethernet controllers, sound, sleep mode, etc) may not work.

In other words, do so at your own risk. I don't recommend it though...if you really like Mac OS X, buy a Mac. :)
