    I am looking into buying a new or use laptop that I can hackintosh. Now what type of laptop would be good for hackintoshing? I need it to run Snow Leopard and most likely be able to run Lion (when it officially comes out.) Also I want it to run Xcode. I would also like it to run Mac OS X pretty fast and also with as few bugs as possible. So the big question is... What type of laptop should I get

    It has to have at least 4GB of RAM. 500GB Harddrive and a nice video card.

    i don't want a netbook because well.... Netbooks suck balls and I hate doing anything on a slow computer

    How much does the NB505 cost? I found a used HP ProBook 4520s on ebay for $365.00
