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.

You forgot that I labeled the computer with an Apple logo. Problem solved ;) .


LOL. Might as well....it's the same thing, without the $1,000+ "cool"-factor tax.

I don't know anyone who buy's Apple for the 'cool' factor; I purchase an iPod because there are no other hard disk based players in New Zealand are are compatible with Mac's out of the box by the vendor. I purchase a Mac because I want Mac OS X - if Apple licenced Mac OS X each of the big vendors - I wouldn't have bought a Mac.

Its a tongue 'n cheek reply of yours - I know, but the reality is that the joke is getting very tiresome after a while.

I know A LOT of those. Then again, I frequent Amsterdam and that cesspool of a city is filled with people who would use such reasoning to buy products.

I went with a non-iPod music player myself as it would have limited me intolerably.

- only works with Windows and osX
- only plays music, displays images and plays video (later models)

The iTouch and phone expand the possibilities greatly but you still don't get full functionality without voiding your warranty. They do very well for what they are designed to do though so I don't mean to slam anyone who found it to be the best choice for there own needs.
