very impossible. OS X is not designed for the Pentium Processor line. OS X is locked to running on the PowerPC processor, which is only available from Apple.

Buy a mac, get Virtual PC, and load up XP through that. Then anytime you want to use XP you woud run VPC.
I use both, I have a PC w/XP and my PowerBook, and I am running XP on my mac as well through virtualpc. You can also run linux, and Win9x through it as well.

No, it is pretty expensive : http://www.microsoft.com/mac/product...virtualpc.aspx

Starts at $129 OS-LESS ( you provide your own os ) and then jumps to $249 with Win2K and up and up

Do people honestly not know about the whole difference in systems? It grates on my mind to see posts like this, where correct punctuation and, often, spelling, take a back seat. Not that I'm trying to say this guy's a l00z0R or something, just that it kinda feels like nails on a chalkboard.

Hi! SORRY. Not possible. You can make a Mac look and operate like a PC with one of the PC Emulators out there but you cannot make a PC into a Mac. Wish it were so because we would have a lot more Mac users if possible.

People who can't spill? I never thought I'd have such mundane people to idolize so much!

Its because they dont know any better. The novice computer user sees a "computer" as a Pentium based Windows drive monster.
Someone who is about to purchase their first computer, and has done Windows based courses on how to use a "computer" will ask for a PC, when really they want a computer.
So they go into PC World. There are what, 20 PC's on show and 4 macs.

The chances of them buying a Mac? Very very low.
