    Ok errybody.

    I'm about to get a HP PC for a ridiculously low sum of money.

    since it will be mine, and not my parents, i'm going to make it into a hackintosh.
    not sure of the model yet, but its an ultra compact pc.

    i basically need to know the basics:
    specs needed
    possible versions

    and anything else you think i need to know.


    [SIDE NOTE]
    i need to know how to get rid of the current os [vista professional]
    and replace it with vista home premium.

    any insight to either of these things would be awesome.
    i love learning new things i can do with my computer.
    EDIT
    Specs:
    Processor type:
    Intel® Celeron® Processor 420 (1.60 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB) or Intel® Pentium® Dual Core E2160 / E2180 (1.80 to 2.00 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB) or Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E4500 / E4600 / E6550 / E6750 / E6850 / E7200 / E8200 / E8300 / E8400 / E8500 (2.20 to 3.16 GHz, 2 to 6 MB L2 cache, 800 to 1333 MHz FSB)

    rest of specs are here
