    Okay, have you guys heard of the BIY (Build it yourself) laptops?

    http://www.zipzoomfly.com/NBmicro/BIYConfig.html?ppc_cid=CC2DOLRLa1H08us_E

    It is very cheap and about $2000 dollars cheaper than buying the Macbook I want. But, is it possible to buy the Mac OS and Install it on there? Also, can the case that they send you be changed and how thick is the one they send you?

    Thanks

    No, you can only install OS X on Apple hardware.

    Um, I don't see that it's cheap at all. There are very few configuration options, nothing for the video adapter. I think you should shop around. Dell and HP have more choices and better prices than that.
