I want to buy a new laptop wich can also run Hackintosh, but I'm having troubles finding one.

 

I only have a few demands:

- The screen has to be between 13" and 15", so I guess it will lead to 13,3" and 14,1" laptops

- a (reasonable) fast processor

- budget: maximum of 1000 euro

 

optional demands:

- HDMI output

- Higher resolution (for example 1600x900)

 

If possible I want to run Snow on it, but some late version of Leopard is also good.

 

I found only the next few laptop wich would satisfy my hardware demands, but I don't know jet how good they will be for running OSx86

- Dell Vostro 3300 (13,3")

- Dell latitude E5410 (14,1")

- Sony Vaio VPCEA1S1E (14")

- Sony Vaio VPCEA2S1E (14")

- Sony Vaio VPCEA2X5E (14")

 

I would like to hear if you know more laptops that satisfy my demands, and how good they are for running hackintosh

 

(apology for my bad english, I'm from the Netherlands. I can read English but my writing isn't so good..)

All of those laptops are perfectly capable of running OS X like a champ. I'm running OS X on an Intel Atom 1.6GHz with 2GB DDR2 533 RAM, 80GB 5400RPM Hard Drive and OS X 10.5.2 and its very smooth. My processor is equivalent in speed to a Pentium III so any of those laptops are fine. I can't tell you which laptop would be the easiest to convert to OS X but performance wise don't sweat about it.

These 4 5 laptops aren't netbooks, so they also don't use Atom processors. They use Intel I3 or I5 processors (and C2D)

And I'm not that confident they will run OSX, so I hope there will be some people here who can say more about it
