People don't build PC's from scratch and install Mac OS X Leopard because its not easily done. With some drivers and a few other tweaks it can be done. Its also against the law, A few companies and getting sued by apple for doing this. In apples EULA it says that their software can only be installed on Apple Hardware and on their machines. A lot of people dont do It because its just too buggy.
And why build a home made mac when you can buy one. The design of Apple computers is also what a lot of people like. I have a all-in-one iMac and its design is elegant!

15.4" MacBook Pro Unibody

All of the modern Macs have both Wi-Fi cards (in Apple speak "AirPort cards") and Ethernet (network) adapters, usually Gigabit Ethernet adapters.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The Current crop of MBPs have an Airport card built in that does A, G & N based on the network it is connected to.
