    I didn't know Clubsnap Kopitiam turned into an Acer notebook dealership?

    Reliable answers should be available from any decent Acer retailer or through website enquiry?

    It will be illegal to run MacOSX on computers other than Apple's own products.

    Is there any terms and conditions stated that MacOSX must not run on computers other than Apple's own products?

    Yup. Read the MacOSX EULA. It says it's illegal to run MacOSX on non-Apple hardware. But it's possible to install MacOSX on other hardware, just that I don't know how. Search?
