Hey, im new to the forums and not too computer intelligent when it comes to hardware and such, but being a hardcore gamer, apple machines always leave me wanting a little bit more, and now since the new OS can run on intel chipsets, is it possible to load OSX on a computer that was previously windows based (for example, a dell or an alienware computer with intel core duo processors?)
thanks!

He said it all except one thing: It is illegal to put it on a non mac computer as well, because only pirated versions can do this.
