    well i always wanted to build myself a computer but i was thinking and i already have 3 of them and so i thought maybe i should build a mac. so i want to install snow leopard on it (retail disk) so does anyone know a list of parts i need to build a hackintosh that can run the mac retail disks without any mods and can be updated just by clicking update? i was going to just get a broken mac and fix it up but it would cost more than using pc parts. im not sure if i will go along with it. i need to know how much all the parts would cost. i want a macbook but im thinking of using an old desktop i have laying around. so how would i get started? please someone help me out. thanks

    If you want a hackintosh laptop, you can use a Dell Mini 9. Almost everything works with leopard. And if you want to make a desktop, I'm sure a google search will find all the parts you need.
