    Not that I'd be interesting in purchasing one, but has anyone heard anything about non-Apple notebooks capable of running OS X? Purely out of curiosity...

    Engadget and TUAW take about it once in a while. The newer Dell Laptops appear to be able to do it. Most however require OSx86, and installing on now Apple hardware breaks the EULA.

    TEG, I don't know what you do in your free time, but you have probably answered questions for me more than anyone else here. Even on threads I didn't post or even reply to.

    You should get paid for this.

    OSx86 has its own site if you need any information on the subject.

    Cool, thanks. This was truly out of curiosity. I don't think I could trust a clone company.

    Not a problem. There are always curious people out there. By the way if you look around the forums, there are a few people that have Hackintosh Computers.

    It's a hack job, depending on how much money your time is worth, may or may not be worth it to you.
