Installing OSX on any computer?

I got an iPhone a few weeks ago and now its really pulled me much closer to trying Mac OS than I thought id ever be!
I went into the apple store near me and the MacBook Pro is a quite expensive at around £2000. I cant justify spending that kinda money on something im not sure about, so...
Is it possible to just buy osx and install and run it on a spare computer that I have at home?
Maybe this is a silly question, I dont know. I can see that apple have their marketing well sorted out and they are going for desirability with the design and stuff. So taking this into consideration I imagine they might not be too keen on people installing their OS on any old computer!

It would be a violation of the EULA, and thus instructions on doing so is not something you'll find on this forum.. I will say though that since OS X is really built on a specific hardware set one could find drivers etc a challengemike

And since it would be against the EULA of OS X...I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
