hey guys, i have never owned a mac before and i am really interested at this point. i don't have the money to actually buy one, but i do have the money for snow leopard and i know that it can be installed onto laptops with a bit of knowledge (or instructions). the laptop is made by gateway and was purchased in 2008 and is really running strong. i wiped it out completely and put windows 7 rc1 on it in september, and it's been smoother than when i bought it new even. windows 7 rc1 is set to expire though in about ten days, so here is what i plan on doing: buying snow leopard and replacing windows 7 on this notebook. will it work? the purpose of this thread is to figure out if i will run into any horrible hardware problems, or pretty much any big problems known with these particular specs. i'm new to mac, so please be nice. i just bought an iphone like 5 months ago, so i'm kind like you guys .
