    Shift from Windows to MAC
    Hi all,
    I have a laptop which is without OS. So I am planning to install "MAC OS X Leopard".

    My laptop configuration is:
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz
    2GB DDR2 RAM
    120 GB HDD
    Shared video memory

    I am working on different windows versions from past 10 years. I am very much comfortable with windows. I know where to go for a specific problem in windows. Now I have some questions in my mind before installing MAC OS X:
    1.Will my laptop configuration support MAC OS X Leopard?
    2.Do I need to take care of some things before installing?
    3.Will my normal PC keyboard and mouse work on MAC? If Yes, then how?
    4.What all support software should I install to work?
    5.How will my office documents will work in MAC?
    6.How can I play windows based games on MAC?

    Some of the other guys might be able to confirm this but I thought it was against the EULA to install OS X on a non apple supplied platform, as for the other bits I dont know.

    Correct, plus the fact that it won't work anyway (Well not without a lot of illegal fiddling about).
