    I'm not sure which thread I was supposed to post this in, as its not related to the ipod touch, but is it possible to boot the mac os X on a PC?

    Yes, technically on a Pentium 4 or higher processor.

    But it's hideously complicated and not for the weak of heart.

    Well yes. I did it on a spare Dell box of mine, it took me about 8 hardware swaps before I had a working machine. Easier just to buy a mac - I mean it's worth it in the end

    ...or just download and install the free to use PearPC?

    Wack in your OSX disk (Or heaven forbid, download an iso of it

    "fast" has nothing to do with it. Intel is a major part.
