    I was curious, now that there are intel macs running Osx with Rossetta. Can I install OSX on my old P3 1ghz laptop?

    You technically could with something like Pear, but it's illegal and it won't run very well anyway.

    You're confused. OS X is natively running on Intel Macs. Rosetta is there so you can run PPC applications on Intel Macs.

    That had nothing to do with running OS X on PC boxes.

    Running it on a Windows based laptop... bit of a no go. Its been done with hacks, but it is illegal

    Yes it is possible, I made the mistake of linking to a group of Think Pad users who had done it, but the moderators had to remove the link because it is, as a previous poster quite rightly pointed out, illegal.

    Technically possible, but illegal.

    I also think every time Apple role out a software update it would just cause problems. Overall not worth it.
