Hey, i am an owner of a pc that runs windows 8. I have never owned a mac, but i see it all the time and i dont want to just go out and buy a mac because i am unfamiliar with it. I know there are ways to download mac os for pc, and i know you need the right "prerequisites", if you will, but i was wondering if it was illegal to do this. Obviously i do not want to do something illegal, but if it is legal i would love to do it! Can anyone help me so i can make the right move?

Running Mac OS X on a PC (non Apple Hardware) violates the EULA of Mac OS X.

Mac OS is meant to run on Apple hardware, no exceptions.
