This detailed guide is explaining how you can install Mac Os X 10.6.7 on your Asus N53SN laptop and how you can get full qe/ci support with native resolution. All other devices not tested right now. I will update in the time when I get work other devices.

ATTENTION PLEASE! ALL YOUR DATA WILL GONE ON YOUR DISK!
I don’t know how you can install windows and mac os x on the same disk. This way you can install on an external hard drive.
