The problem with the so-called Hackentosh Netbooks is they are just
hacks. I've seen all kinds of hacks out there that try to emulate Mac OS
X on standard PC hardware, but they are all flawed in some way.
For example, there is suppose to be a hacked Mac OS Leopard image
ffloating around on the internet that you can extract to an empty hard
drive on your PC, reboot, and run Mac OS X Leopard on various desktops
and laptops from HP, Compaq, Del, etc. However, it is very problematic.
In some cases I've heard it runs fine, but in a lot of cases it won't
even boot, or it gets to the startup screen and crashes.
Anyway, the point is I think if a person wants to go Mac it is a good
idea to actually own a Mac. It is much easier to run Windows on a Mac
using Boot Camp than it is to run Mac OS on a Windows PC using PearPC or
other emulation software.
