    Hi, I was thinking about trying to install mac os x on a laptop that I just ordered. I just ordered an hp dv6700t laptop with the following specs.

    Upgrade to Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
    - Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9300 (2.50GHz)
    - 15.4" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800)
    - 4GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
    - 50% OFF 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS - For Core 2 Duo Processors
    - HP Imprint Finish (Radiance) + Microphone + Fingerprint Reader + Webcam
    - Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
    - 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
    - SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support
    - No TV Tuner w/remote control
    - 12 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
    - Microsoft® Works 9.0
    - HP Home & Home Office Store in-box envelope


    I was thinking about installing about installing the latest version of mac os x (since I heard about how bad vista is). Do any of you know if there are drivers available to install mac os x on the dv6700t? Is that all I would have to do? I would greatly appreciate any help since I am a noob when is comes to apple software. Thanks for your time.

    I dont know anyone who has. Just to let you know, it may not work well or even at all, and updates may break your computer. Be sure of what you are getting into.
