i need to get a new laptop for my parents, who are looking to spend around 500. they've had trouble in the past with using windows, so I really want to get them an OS X laptop. with budget constraints buying a genuine apple mac is out of the question, so I am looking at sorting a hackintosh for them.

Does anybody have a hackintosh laptop that 100% works, and isn't too much trouble to setup? I will be fine to set everything up but everything needs to basically work ie wifi, graphics etc as I will not be able to keep going home to help them out!

I've been looking at the dell inspiron 15" and studio 15" as possibilities.. anyone got any experience of these?

many thanks
