Hi all,

i am currently looking for a new notebook which can run snowleo as good as possible.

the main things are:

an i5 or better: an i7 processor >2,39GHz
a high end graphics card (nvidia) with working vga or hdmi
a working soundcard
a 15,4" Display
a working ethernet (gigabit)
a mini PCIexpress slot for my wifi card (or a working one onboard)
a chipset with all working (except sleep, i do not realy use it)
64bit mode

things i do not realy need, but would be nice:

a trackpad with more functionality than just pointing and clicking
working bluetooth
non glare screen

if anybody knows a notebook that matches this description as good as possible, please tell me (but tell me the disadvantages too).

Dari

PS: Sorry for my bad english.

its highly unlikely you are going to get many responses on this post. It's a rather hard list to come up with.

Basically, nearly all laptops have limitations and you aren't going to find many easy native installations, matching all those specs. There are just way too many configurations and types of components out there. (I'm assuming you want native-like laptop for ease of use, or you wouldnt be asking that question).

Id say you have a couple options: a) buy a macbook pro, ^_^ build a custom desktop via the osx86 component wiki, or 3, try to find a list of laptops that work.

Again, you will not be able to pick and choose the hardware you want in most laptops. There is however, a website dedicated to netbooks here that shows a compatibility chart... http://www.mymacnetb...tibility-chart/

Its probably no use to you though if you want a high end OSX laptop. I haven't come across any other charts for laptops yet, but you are free to look around.

Id suggest you find a computer that has the specs you are looking for, then hit up the wiki and check compatibility of each component. OSX86 takes a lot of time (usually hours or days), research, and patience.

Treat your OSX86 as a hobby instead of a computer for practical use. You are really limiting your options when you start talking about GPU specs and a lot of laptops will be missing video out and many more are missing features like sleep or even shutdown or restart.

Weigh out what is most important to you.
Good luck!
