I talked to a guy at a coffee shop who told me that his IT department found a hack on the internet that allows them to run OS X on Dells with no problems. If I see him again, is there anything specific I should ask him?

Why don't you switch to Windows Vista?
I fall into the camp that believes that operating systems should...
Marc - I jumped the gun here - let's see what happens at MacWorld If Apple doesn't come through then I'd like to pursue your idea. Last winter I got a demo from a guy who had OS X working on his dell, so that would be the direction I'd like to head.
There are a lot of laptop users at the coffee shop I go to, and it seems at least 60% of these are Mac users. This is interesting, since Apple's market share just passed the 5% mark in 3rd quarter (Macworld 10/19/2006).

Are you suggesting that Mac users drink more coffee?

Well, I was observing that there seem to be Mac "pockets," without knowing how to explain it. But now that you mention it, maybe there is a demographic overlap between Mac users and coffee house patrons.
(Hmmm... I'm kind of kidding, but there might be something to that.)
Interesting article - it wasn't clear which Thinkpad was used, although they're probably all in a similar state. Most of the Thinkpads I've seen are around the same size as a Macbook - which wouldn't buy me anything, I'm hoping for a substantial reduction in size and weight - like in the 2 lb. neighborhood.
You would be glad to hear that you can run Mac OS X x86 now on X86 based architecture pc's,the pc with windows are of x86 architecture,and currently the pc i own is having Mac OS X x86 10.4.6 version,although i have installed it on a seperate hard disk,its running absolutely fine,i have checked with the audio/video its working fine,except the SATA Hard Disk.
Thanks and Regards, Anand
