I already have Windows 7 Pro x64 and Ubuntu 11.10 dual booted right now, and I am considering adding a third OS and having it a Hackintosh.

Sys Specs (Speccy ftw)

CPU
Intel Core i5 @ 2.30GHz
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology

RAM
6.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)

Motherboard
Lenovo Emerald Lake (CPU)

Graphics
Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
nVidia GeForce 525M Link

Hard Drive
733GB Western Digital WDC WD7500BPVT-24HXZT1 (SATA)

Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio

Network
Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter

I believe my hardware should be sufficient to run OS X Snow Leopard.

It's much harder than it looks than just hardware and installing it. Have to go hunting down for some very specific (and often nonexistant) drivers that only work on Mac. I've tried it before and it wasn't a very pretty ending.

You also can never run System Update on a Hackintosh (since it breaks the whole system everytime).

I have been checking into it. It will involve methods that are not good to speak about on here. I have seen it and used one, though. I've seen it work well, and not work so well.

A Hackintosh is a Mac OS X Operating System running on a Non-Apple (Or PC) Computer.

I don't think I'm going to do it. I have a copy of Snow Leopard, but from what I've gathered, it'll wipe out my other operating systems on my hard drive. I'd rather that not happen.

I have never really liked Mac so I don't really see the point in putting that onto a PC with windows. I prefer Windows to Mac.
