    Default What disc and will it work?

    Sorry, I'm new here, but I'm a freshman in college, and I'm doing some graphic design stuff and realizing that Mac is definitely the way to go. However, I don't really want to dish out a couple thousand for a MacBook, and I had heard about Hackintosh a while back, and I'm hoping to give it a try. I'm wondering if anyone knows if it will work with these specs, and if so, which disc I should use? Thanks so much guys.

    This is my laptop:

    Default 7150m graphics are unsupported

    There are no working graphics drivers for the nvidia geforce go 7150m GPUs. I doubt there ever will be. They use shared system memory which for what I have gathered is the biggest reason why they do not work. You might be able to install OSX, but you'll have to run in Safe-Mode (it does provide full-color), and the best resolution you'll get is 1024x768 non-accelerated. Actually the video is run through emulation, or at least so I have read. Which causes the laptop to run hot, and drain the battery, I know mine did (so no running it disconnected from the AC.)
