Hackintosh?

I was wondering if anyone familiar with it and if it will run properly with these components.
IntelŪ Core™ i7 740QM Quad Core Processor, 1.73GHz, 6M Cache
1GB GDDR5 ATI Radeon™ Mobility HD 5850
15.6-inch WideHD+ 1600x900 (900p) WLED
4GB Dual Channel Memory (2x 2GB DDR3)
500GB SATAII 7,200RPM
Slot-Load Dual Layer DVD Burner (DVD+-RW, CD-RW)
Wireless 1520 802.11n Half Mini-Card

or if there is another way to run mac on windows computer ill look into that also

They have always been strict about their proprietary software n hardware, even though they have given in to using x86 chips n some other changeable hardware. I bet they still enforce getting their cut in some way he means.

A few companies have tried selling Hackintosh PC's and were stomped out. If you can get it up and running there's no guaranty that they won't change something and brick it on you or block it from functioning correctly.

For best results look here. http://www.hackintosh.com/

My brother's been running OS X on his PC through a grub boot loader for years now. He's a programmer and uses it for iPhone development.

I did this last year. Bought my son a Dell mini for Christmas. The thing was slow as hell so Installed OSX on it. 10x faster!!.

But that doesn't matter now the kid is always stealing my iPad.
