Hi everybody.
I've just bought a 1000€ PC and I'd like to get Mountain Lion on it. I'd like to know 2 things :
- is it a good idea to make a Hackintosh or is it better to buy a second hand Mac ?
- how can I make it ?

In Vietnam, some people will install Mac Lion 10.7 or 10.8 on PC for you with 13$. Are there services like that in your country? Try to find them on Tech forums.

Hackintosh is illegal. Nobody would take this risk in France...

You can install real Mac, not Hackintosh. Buy a Mac disk with 30$ and they will install for you. Many forums in Vietnam has this service.

I made a Hackintosh and was successful. I used iAtkos L2 (Lion), and you have to make sure to follow the directions on how to install it to a T. (Meaning, be sure to follow the directions exactly.) And you want to make sure that your machine can run it before you begin. So, research, research, research (like =LordReserei said)! But it IS possible to do by yourself, but ONLY if you are PATIENT, and are willing to do a little trial and error. It took me several tries before I got mine up and running, and that was ONLY because I didn't bother looking up my system specs, and wanted to take shortcuts.

So, in short, proceed at your own risk, but it IS doable, and it is pretty satisfying when you DO get it up and running.

I'm afraid I can't help you here.
I've seen Hackintosh running, and it seems okay. They have forums, you should be able to find help there.

OS X has a very closed set of system requirements. There are a few forums like insanelymacDOTcom that can provide information for installing OS X on a PC, and LifeHacker also has a tutorial. Depending on your PC specs, it might not be possible - I had to learn that the hard way.

I've heard many people who have had perfectly good Hackintosh PCs, and I often advocate it as an alternative to buying a Mac. So my advice is the three Rs. Research, Research, (and you guessed it) Research.

I mean if you can afford to buy a second hand or refurbished Mac, then I guess you could just buy one.

Not Recommended Hackintosh or Mackintosh or whatever it is. ;)
Use/Buy Windows or Linux. :)

De toute façon Mac Os X serait installé sur un disque dur. Donc ca ne fera rien au pc. Je pense que c'est une bonne idée :) De plus il y a plein de bon tutos sur internet ce qui te permettre de tout bien faire!

Mais si ca foire j'aurai payé un disque de 20€ pour rien ! (ils disent qu'y a des bugs !)
Et y a pas moyen d'installer M-Lion direct il me semble...
