Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

Will your point is still valid and probably apply to Thom too , it's not what I was going for , pointing out that he is missing some components in his description , witch make his price obersevation obsolete if he don't say if you already have those and even name/price them.

here are some idea for your space problem :

Beside these days it's more practical to go with laptop / netbook , then mini ITX. They stack better , can be put on wall or bracket mounts. They also come with screen , mouse and dvd included , they are also portable and priced in the 400$-500$ range.

I am waiting for Apple to release a netbook type computer in the 500$ range. Just so that it cover the people who don't have 1200$ , it would probably crush the Apple clone too , who would go for them when the original is 500$.
