So this laptop has the following specs:
-Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5Ghz (Turbo Boost to 3.1Ghz)
-4GB RAM DDR3
-nVidia Optimus GT 630M 2GB
-Intel HD4000 Integrated
-Intel HM77 Chipset
-Realtek HD Audio
-500GB SCSI
-Acer nplify 802.11a/g/n
-Bluetooth 4.0

Can any of the OSX releases work on this machine?

Exactly thats what I mean.. Thanks.
@danielmih If you are looking for something small like a MBA replacement have a look at a Acer Aspire S3 Series Ultrabook :)

Would MacOS run on my Acer Aspire with ATi Radeon graphics? From what I know, most of the iMacs have nVidia graphics inside.

If the bios has an option to switch to descrete graphics only, it might work. Otherwise you need a bios mod. But this seems to be only possible, if this option is implemented in the bios of your laptop and only hidden.

To proof this existing option you have to extract the ACPI tables in windows to a file and search in it for "descrete" or "dedicated" gfx option. Use a tool like AIDA64 for this.

Have fun.

I understand. I will check if I have such an option in BIOS. Thanks a lot for your help, styrian!
