Is it possilbe to instal the new MAC OS onto a PC computer and then use Boot to install Windows 7? I would love to own a MAC but to expensive now. If this is possible do I need to check with hardware compatibility first and if so how? Would I need to tweak my PC to install the MAC OS? I plan purchasing the MAC OS software to install if it will work.

Absolutely not, Apple prohibit the use other than on Apple hardware.  EE are not able to advise anything else.

Here are the EULA's for Apple software.  The restriction is that Mac OS may only be installed on Apple branded hardware.

Ok, I was not aware of that. I'll stick with my PC then :)

Youcan get a Mac mini for super cheap. And you can legally run windows on it if you want.
