I'm curious about attempting to install Mac OS X on a PC laptop. I have a degree in computer science, so I don't need basic descriptions of how to do it, I just want to know what potential pitfalls or problems I could encounter with it. I'm currently running Linux on my laptop and Windows 7 on my desktop, but I'm going to be starting music school and my school teaches music technologies in a Mac environment, so I would like to familiarize myself with it without having to purchase a new computer.
Has anybody ever installed Mac OS X on a PC personally (I've seen the Youtube videos and read the tutorials, but I want to know if any of you have ever successfully done it)? What potential problems could I face? Can I use a retail copy of Mac OS for the install or do I need a special hack version or hacked software to accomplish this?
