    Default can I Legally run a brand new OS X DVD on my PC?

    I want to start developing for the iPhone, but I only have a PC, and, buying a MAC ain't that good for my wallet......
    is there a legal way of running MAC OS X on my PC?
    I would have enough money to just buy the standalone DVD (btw, is snowleopard out for sale yet? when will it be?)

    I have a turion x2 2.0 64bit amd proccesor with 3 gigs of DDR2, which I believe would be enough for the latest iPhone SDK, for which I signed up.....

    I seriously do not want to go into the pearpc and dualboot pirated stuff..... I used to do that, not anymore.........

    Help....

    If you're concerned about doing it legally then you're out of luck. There is no way to legally run OS X on non-apple hardware, period.

    Seriously, though, you're not going to get arrested. Steve Jobs is not going to kick down your door and taze you to death. It's about as illegal as jaywalking or loitering, which means that you'd really have to piss someone off to get in trouble.

    Just to point out that it is possible now... Try :: EFIX ::

    With that, because it's just boot code emulation, takes away the piracy or copyright issues that you might face. One thing that remains is the EULA that you might be breaking, but if you take it literally you can clear yourself by using an apple sticker on your machine...

    Being my point precisely. If you ran an OS X dvd, installed it into an "Apple-labeled computer" it's legal. Thus, if you take it literally, if you had an apple sticker on your PC you can run it legally... or at least without violating the EULA.

    Yeah, and using the Apple brand on your computer is copyright infringement.

    The whole "put an apple sticker on your computer and its legal" thing is BS, but there is nothing to worry about in the first place. Apple is not going after us small folk, they're only concerned about companies like psystar.

    A lot of people who hackintosh their computers have multiple legit macs already and are simply looking for something different (like me), or they end up buying a real mac after they've seen the light . Apple is not going to piss off potential/long-time customers.

    Not if that sticker is from Apple themselves. (last I hear they did bundle a few of them with iPhones.. but then I may be wrong since I only have a 2G iPhone... but I know for sure that your friends with macs would have at some point the stickers, because they can be found in boxes of the new macs)

    Also since when did they say it has to be the "Apple Brand"? It just says "Apple-labeled computer"
