    Hi everyone,

    I am begginer programer and I always wanted to start programming iOS apps. I have 3 computers with windows 7 running on it, but I can't start programming for iOs because I don't have Mac Os. I tried to install mac os on each computer, but it didn't work. I don't want to buy expensive mac computer just for xcode. So my question is: Can I somehow run Mac Os on computers with this hardware? :

    1. My main one PC:

    Video card: GeForce GTS 450 1GB DDR5
    Power supply: 750W
    Ram: 4x4= 16 GB
    Motherboard: Intel P67
    Processor: Intel Core i7-2600 3,4GHz

    2. Second is my old PC

    Video card: GeForce GT 440 / PCI-E 2.0 / 1GB GDDR3 / 128-bit
    Power supply: ATX 500W
    Ram: 2 GB
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
    Proccesor: INTEL E6420 CORE2D 2.12Ghz

    3. The third is my laptop lenovo v570c

    Video card: GeForce 410M
    Ram: 4 GB
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
    Proccesor: Intel Core i3 2.20Ghz

    If you will need more details about them, just ask.

    Thank you all for help :)

    Sorry for my bad english

    You can run OS X on a non-Apple computer, but it does involve a lot of tinkering with getting JUST the right hardware.

    All in all, when you buy just the right hardware and get it all running you will have probably spent ~$1000 and MANY hours.

    You can try the #1 configuration, but it may not work.

    For some the challenge of getting a stable Hackintosh working is worth the time spent. If you are not one of those kinds of people, go get an Mac mini. The mini is priced pretty reasonably.
