Because OSX requires EFI and not BIOS like the OQO and ThinkPad. Also, OSX is designed to only boot on machines that have a special security chip. So, for those reasons you will not be able to install OSX on either of those machines.
Before you or anyone else decides to reply otherwise, keep in mind that you would have to do some serious hacking which would constitue piracy and illegal activity, which if you read the Forum Rules, you would know that is not open for discussion here.
