    You could post your specs, relevant to OSX installation.

    Integrated Intel« Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M\\\ This is gonna be your biggest problem. Even if you get it installed you won't have QE (Quartz Extreme) or full graphics resolutions available. This will hender you from being able to install certain programs that rely on QE.

    You know what......none of you will EVER EVER EVER get a perfect install of Mac OS X on a laptop. Believe me, I have tried. You may come really close, but it will never be perfect. You will get an initial success that will no doubt thrill you, it did for me. But you know what get's tiring, is when the next update from Apple breaks something (and it will). Or, you hold off and wait for the ôdistroö that you are using to release their next update, which will always lag behind the Apple release. You will no doubt have continuing issues with ethernet, wireless and graphics and then what about the touchpad, camera, sleep, bonjour, card reader etc etc etc etc.....the list continues.

    If you want to make a (close to) fully functional Hackintosh, then go with a custom desktop build. Do your research, choose your hardware carefully and do a LOT of reading from websites such as this one, and: InsanelyMac, Kexts, TonyMac.

    If you insist on a laptop, then go buy a real Mac or be prepared for a lot of pain and aggravation.
