I want to get a new Laptop to which I can install Leopard and I can still run Windows XP or Vista.
I know that I can buy a Mackbook and then use the Boot Camp to install Windows XP, but looking at the prices for Macbooks and comparing its features and hardware to a PC-Laptop I think I will be better off buying a Laptop and then installing Leopard.
My main concern is which hardware is compatible (Drivers, controllers,...) in order to be able to run Leopard. The features that I am looking in a Laptop are:
- Intel Core 2 Duo at least 1,66 GHz
- At least 2 GB of Ram
- At least 200GB of Hard Drive
- One of the following Graphic Cards: Intel X3100, ATI Radeon HD2600, ATI Radeon HD2400
- Intel Wireles 802.11 A/B/G/N
- DVD+-/RW Burner
- Integrated Webcam
- V.92 56K Data/Fax Modem
- 10/100 integrated Ethernet LAN
- 5-in-1 Media Card Reader; 6 USB 2.0, RJ11, RJ45, IEEE1394, external microphone, headphone port, RGB, TV-Out
- The Manufacturer could be Toshiba or HP
I know that some of those details are 'irrelevant', but any suggestion in any of them will be great. I want everything working, or at least, the most important element (i.e. I dont care about the Modem).
I was not able to fin the name and type of the motherboard. I guess the motherboard is one of the most important parts, but I think they use the same mother board to run the Intel Core 2 Duo processor in Laptops (Including Macbooks).
So, I will be very glad if any of you fellows can suggest me:
1) Brand (Either HP or Toshiba)
2) Hardware requirements (Which ones work better and smoothly) (Which ones should I NOT take)
3) Software to be installed (Which Leopard, Parallel, OSx86, Hackintosh,...)
4) How should I install it
5) Any other suggestions
Thanks. Best Wishes
