Does anyone know how or if it's possible to run Mac OS X on computers other than Apple computers? I've read where someone did this on a Dell, but I have a ThinkPad I want to put a new OS on and if I could get Tiger to run on it that would be great!

I hadn't seen that video before. I love the way the host says "Hey, putting OS X on a Thinkpad breaks Apple's EULA and is possibly illegal, so you should not do this. It's wrong. But now I'm gonna tell you how to do it..." Laughing

I like the way they do that for movies & music also...then explain how to do it. I just love it.

Good thing we have Open Source software...maybe Apple should open the code for OS9 and older versions. That's an idea.

Thanks for the input. I have a ThinkPad Z60t that I was using for work and I thought it might be something to do because I like the Mac OS and it cost less than getting a new copy of XP Pro. When I bought the ThinkPad a couple of years ago, they included a copy of XP Pro with all the attached IBM crap. I just want a nice clean install and thought this might be one way. Now I'm leaning toward Linux seeing how I have several copies of that. I understand Apple not wanting you to put their operating system on non-Apple computers, if nothing else trying to support it would be a major burden on their resources. After viewing the videos, the reward doesn't look like it would be worth the trouble you have to go to.

Just an idea PA, but you could always sell the Thinkpad and buy a refurb'd iBook to run OS X from Wegener Media. They start at $169.

JohnnyBoy,

I hope to be starting a new job soon that will require me to get a new MacBook Pro, or at least that's what I'm telling the wife.

Thanks!

Linux would be an excellent choice, since Thinkpads have very good linux support.

I have a 233mhz Thinkpad 380XD running a minimum Debian system. I've had it about 5+ years now, but hardly use it.

Johnny, thanks for that link...I may check out getting one of those ibooks.

Well I'd love to know how you get on. I've thought about ordering from them, especially now that the exchange rate favours the Brits. I'm just not sure about the shipping charges or how the unwanted US power adapter would be dealt with.
