    No. OS X can only be installed on Apple branded hardware. Just buy a Mac. You know you want to.

    Note that although Terence is right for the most part, you will find sites out there that claim to give instructions for getting Mac OS X to work on a PC. However, it's important to understand that this can only work if the hardware is very similar to a Mac's hardware, and even then you're going to end up with a crappy, quirky, crash-prone shadow of Mac OS X. (So, not much different than Windows! ) It's really not worth the trouble, and it's a violation of the license anyway.
