May sound like a dumb question, but I despise Vista and don't have the money for a Mac computer... So, is it still possible to have the OS?

Dell Crapiron 531, Windows Vista

    Mac minis start at $599 and they come with Leopard!

    Google and you'll see someone had done it. But it's much nicer to just get a Mac IMO.

    A Mac mini is an inexpensive option .

    See what you can get on eBay for your Dell. Put a minimum reserve price on it. If someone bites at the right price buy a Mac and be happy

    wellllll...... yes you can run tiger i know on a pc. many are doing so some with good success. but it will not run native " although have heard of some running native" and sad to say not same as on mac. but have heard of some having very good results. i forget the site to search but google it and should find some options. it is not a simple task to load not at all for novice user. but expect same as trying to run windows on mac may run but never as good as it would on a pc. i looked in to it a while back as i have a mac but am a pc tech and would love to have been able to load it on one of my high hp alienware machines. but abandoned the idea. for a pc if unhappy with vista although it is a improvment over xp and lacks many driver support and is a pig on memory and video and is still a bit buggy. consider linux a good choice finding drivers is a bit of a issue though. or a 866 mhz or better g4 quick silver or mirror drive door machine can be easly found on e bay for $200 to $300 give or take. and those are still very good fast machines. even better go for a dual processor. as for me i am going to keep away from leopard for a while way to much buggy feedback now and i remember when jaguar first came out and i put it on a nightmare of on going problems till panther came out.
