    So now here are some of my questions before i order one Mac operating system For ME!

    What are the main reasons to join Mac instead of XP?
    IS Mac Operating system is good in Speed? or Sucks like Vista?

    In details;
    The most thing i like in my Laptop to be is FAST! i use Acer Aspires Notebook!
    If i install Mac's latest version! will it give a good performance? I mean i installed Safari! It is not such fast as Fire Fox but even i like it's way of operating, and Look! is COOL!

    SO mac is Also like this?

    And the Main in All will my all Hardware will work on MAC Operating system? if yes then sure? IF no? then where i will get the drivers for MAC? As i already said for my Acer's NoteBOOK!

    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    Since you don't list your hardware we cannot sday if it will work

    Have you got a friend with a mac

    Do you have an Apple store near you

    Best to try one out first and see if they work for you.

    And what do you commonly use your computer for, media, research, gaming or something else

    You can't install the Mac OS on an Acer notebook, or any other hardware other than Apple's. So unless you are committed to buying a new computer from Apple, then you are out of luck.

    OS X only works on Apple machines (unless you hack it, which is difficult and takes a few hours of messing about).

    Apple's EULA states that OS X can not legally be used on any other computers that are not Apple computers. It's possible, but it's not legal. Talking about it on this forum violates this forums rules and the thread will be locked.

    Mac = the computers manufactured by Apple.
    OS X = the operating system.

    Saying "Is there no way to use Mac on an Acer" is like saying "Is there no way to use Dell on an Acer".

    To be honest, if you're only just realising you can't use OS X on your Acer and haven't looked anything up on Google I don't know what else we can tell you apart from to visit www.apple.com
