Talk with your local Apple dealer? One can special order some things. But you'll play games to build or modify otherwise.

I think I might give the place that fixed my iPod a call (if only I could remember who they were)..

I don't think I'd build one myself though. id just buy what I needed and have someone build it for me. Because Im not a fan of store brought computers. Custom is always better :thumbsup:

How's this:

build your own "Hackintosh".


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I think I remember hearing somewhere that MAC OS will install on your computer if your computer has a mac dVD drive. I don't know if this is true, and or if it works with newer versions. Then again, this probably wouldn't work because the mac Os might only support special motherboard chipsets or something similar. Plus, I bet a lot of drivers for computer hardware don't work well in Macs. I didn't click the link JohnWho posted, but these are just my thoughts. I'm probably wrong :thumbsup:
