Hi there
The answer to your question is yes and no.

You cannot run OS X on a PC but you can run a windows OS on the new intel macs.

With the new macs you can run it either from boot up in a windows environment (Boot Camp. I would recommend XP not Vista) or you can install an application call 'Parallels' where you can run both systems side by side.

I have both on my portable. There are some windows app's that work better from 'Boot Camp' the only problem with that is you have to shut the mac down and boot to which system you want to use. Where as with Parallels you can drag files and folders from the mac desk top onto the windows. And the switch is really cool.

But you will need to buy a mac. You love it.

Regardless of what you are looking for, my suggestion (to save some dough) is eBay. eBay will have all sorts of Operating Systems for all types of computers, a lot of which you can bid on and win one for cheap or, one that you can buy directly ("Buy Now") option, for cheap.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Is the lexmark x1150 printer compatible with any computer. I have a hewlett packard


Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

SYSTEM SLOW TO LOAD, OVERHEATING AND CANT GET DRIVER


you can hold down the option key while you start up the computer. It will give you a grey screen and give you choices of startup systems... Choose the Mac OS and see if the start up is quicker. Sounds like the windows xp setup isn't working properly. I'd think elimination of the existing pc partition on the hard drive while running in mac mode and then running Boot Camp according to apple's instructions. Boot camp is on the Leopard OS disc and will get your computer ready to instal windows xp with an authorized xp disc. After it's up and running in windows xp, you can reinsert the mac os disc while running windows and the drivers will be installed for you...it works great... Plus you can download a copy of apple's bonjuer software and it will help you set up your printers to work on your mac as well.... Good luck and let me know if you need more help... KEN

DOES THE VERBATIM HARD DRIVE NEED TO BE FORMATED?


Many Verbatim hard drive models with a FireWire interface come “Mac formatted” – pre-formatted for immediate use with Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. They are formatted as HFS+, the preferred format when using the drive exclusively with Mac OS computers.
Note: A Mac-formatted drive will not mount on a Windows PC.
If you plan to use a Mac-formatted hard drive only with computers running Mac OS, you can leave it formatted as it comes from the factory. However, if you plan to use your hard drive with computers running Windows, or with both Mac OS and Windows computers, you should reformat your Verbatim hard drive before saving data to it. Generally, for use with both Mac OS and Windows you should format to FAT32, and for use strictly with Windows you should format to NTFS. More information about these two format types is given below.
FAT32 FAT32 is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista. FAT32 can also be read by Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
Limitations: Maximum file size is limited to 4TB. Furthermore, using the formatting tools included with Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users will not be able to create partition sizes larger than 32GB (though they can access these larger partitions). This limitation does not apply to other supported operating systems. Furthermore, Verbatim provides a FAT32 format utility (see further below for download instructions) that eliminates the 32GB partition limitation.
FAT32 is a good choice if you’ll be using your Verbatim hard drive with older computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, or Windows Me, or if you’ll be using it with both Windows and Mac OS computers.
NTFS NTFS is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS usually results in higher performance than FAT32, and will permit users to create partition sizes larger than 32GB, and file sizes larger than 4TB.
Limitations: NTFS is not compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, or Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
NTFS is a good choice if you will be using your Verbatim hard drive only with one or more computers running Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista. This is also a good choice if you plan to store files larger than 4TB, such as digital video files.

Good Luck
