    Default Best pc laptop for hackintosh?

    Ok, I'm looking to spend less than $1000 on a laptop, used or not. I want to focus on ease of installing OS X on it. The reason for not getting a real mac is that I have a large savings, but don't plan on spending it all on a computer, but on something much more substantial. So, I would love for WiFi to work out of the box, and I'd like a decent GPU, much better than Intel HD graphics, but I have a desktop mainly for gaming, so a fast processor is my main hardware need. I will take any suggestions now, and tomorrow, I can copy links to computers I'm interested in, but I'm on my iPod now, and it's too much of a pain. I would like a built-in webcam, at least 160GB HDD, and I can love with 2GB RAM, but I want to run windows as well as OS X, so closer to 3+GB is better. Now, I know a lot about computers, but I don't want to go taking apart a laptop, I'm fine with modifying my PC, but I have an extremely crippled 17" PBG4, because I took it apart with too much haste, and now it's barely considered portable. Sorry if my post seems a little unorganized, it's just that I'm using my iPod instead of a desktop...haha
    thank you in advance for any suggestions or advice you have to offer.

    Also, a 13" screen is the bare minimum size, but bigger and higher resolution is always better.
    Thanks again!
