    I built a pc about 6 months ago and i ran my copy of XP on it. Recently i started to look at MAC's and i like it. I was wondering if it is possible to buy a MAC os and install it on a normal desktop pc running a AMD processor? If it is possible what OS should i get? Thanks!

    I am not sure about an AMD cpu but you can do it on an Intel cpu. There are illegal hacks out there to do it though. This is borderline against the forums rules.

    It can be done but alot of it is dependent on the hardware you have. Many people have had mixed results using the hack. I wouldn't suggest you try this. Just buy a cheap Mac mini or something.
