Using Mac Osx Lion instead of windows 7

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about buying a Dell xps 15z to run the games i play better than my macs. I've always been a mac guy and i just love the operating systems.

i'm not really sure if this is possible, but could i wipe the harddrive of windows 7 and do a fresh install of Mac osx lion? The only problem i can think of is not having a command key on the laptop.

I'm not very hardware savvy but there may be problems with some of the hardware as well.

Look at tonymacx86.com and insanelymac.com - we are not allowed to talk about this on OCN though.

(but it is pretty easy, check out those sites and you'll figure it out)
