    Default OSX running on laptops from major computer retailers

    Hi i would like to help everyone out there thinking of buying a laptop to run OSX on it. I am in a postion where i repair 50-60 machines a week. From all major OEM's. I work for a large well known pc retailer and as such am able to test pretty much all the machines that my company sells.

    I am looking to set up a matrix for all thses machine to check what machines work and what machines dont. And if everything works or not.

    I have a sata hdd with a version of kalaway that i have been using to test.

    Looking for ideas about anyway for getting this matrix posted online and the sort of information that people would like to see on this list.

    Any ideas or if you are thinkin of buying a laptop to run osx please let me know and I will see if i have tested it yet.

    Maybe a wiki with a link from specific hardware to pages on how to get it installed and working. That way would benefit both ourselves and others looking for information as it would all be in one place!
