Hi, Im looking to buy a laptop to put OSX on, I have done this once before with 10.5.5, but the DVD had everything on it I needed, this time, Im going to buy a computer, and so I want to make sure all the hardware is compatible.

Right now, Im looking at a Gateway with the following specs:

  • Intel® Centrino® processor technology with interrelated Intel® Core™2 Duo mobile processor T6400
  • Intel® PM965 chipset
  • Intel® Wi-Fi Link 3945 network connection (802.11b/g) and extended battery life.
  • Intel® HD Boost
  • SATA hard drive
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 graphics


I also have a few questions about the cpu, I see a lot of support for Intel and not for AMD, but iAtkos and iDeneb both say they have support for AMD. Should I be looking striclty for an Intel system?

Any help and answers would greatly be appreciated, I am also going to be on irc.osx86.hu in #hackint0sh.
