    Looks like everything should run fine, it has an Intel processor which is really the bare minimum you need to run OSX (even now, AMD works).

    The only problem is you have no dedicated graphics card. That basically means you'll be stuck at a low resolution (1200x800) instead of your maximum one, and you'll miss out on the fancy graphical features like the Dashboard fading, genie effect on minimize etc.
    I'm in a similar situation with my own setup. I have a graphics card (ATi Radeon 2400), but nobody has added support for it yet so it's unusable with OSX.

    Thank you for your response, i may try and get a external hard drive and install it on that since i already have Ubuntu installed.

    All that bothers me is the resolution, everything else i dont care. Thank you, hopefully our graphics will be supported soon!

    On your laptop, it won't really make a big difference since the resolutions are so similar. I knew mine was unsupported before I even tried to install OS X, but it's still quite a cool project to try out.

    sadly the height of my laptop is 768, so 800 wouldn't be supported.

    No... the dreaded 1024x768... no.. no... NOOOOOOOO!

    How good is AMD Processor compatibility?

    This matches my GFX card. Does it enable QE/CI?


    OT: On my virtualized Leopard, it says QE/CI isn't supported yet the genie effect works, but not perfectly.
