I'm thinking of buying this laptop from a friend, he mentions that Mac OSX should run on it, but I just wanted to grab someone else's opinion first. The specification is:

  • 1.7GHz Intel Celeron Processor B820
  • 6GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM (2GB + 4GB)
  • 320GB 5400RPM
  • UMA Intel HD Graphics
  • 14" Diagonal High Definition HP Brightview Display LED
  • Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN (RJ-45 connector); 802.11b/g/n WLAN

"Should" is a funny way of putting it! It's obviously not legal to do so (breaking EULA) and is hardly something Apple intends. –  Nicholas Wilson Sep 25 '12 at 21:46
I'm sorry but given the not-so-legal nature of Hackintosh questions, we don't allow them. The same goes for shopping recommendations. If your friend is sure it'll run, he might take it back if it doesn't work? –  slhck Sep 25 '12 at 22:10
This is too late to help you, but as a general reference you can find a list of compatible hardware on wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page . –  jdm Dec 18 '12 at 13:11
