Well up until a while ago, i would have suggested no....but from what I have heard recently, apparently Mac has ported their OS to PC architecture, so it is possible to use the mac os on your computer....not sure where to get it though...

Let me know if you do get it working. (i dont like macs at all, but id be interested to hear if you were successful in getting it to work)
