Can a Dell run Mac OS X?

by on May 6, 2010

Q: I currently have a Dell Inspiron 520 running Windows Vista. I would really like to purchase a Mac but I was wondering if Mac OS X would work on my Personal Computer. I know Mac OS X can run Windows Vista and Windows XP but can a Dell run Mac OS X ?

    It’s *possible*, but it takes a good bit of work. If you’re an enthusiast looking for a hobby project you can read up on what is involved in doing it over here: http://www.hackintosh.com/

    Mac OS X is only officially supported by Apple running on Mac Hardware. Getting it to run on standard PC Hardware can take some tweaking and there isn’t any guarantee that it will work, or work well.
