I built one a while ago, but...

...what a pain to get working just right! I know the OSx86 folks have made major headway, but it's still a hack, and to keep the system running you need to rely on more hacks. I have tried this on more than one system, with the right chipsets, etc., and couldn't get everything working 100%. I am sure there have been some big improvements in the project over the past year or so, but I'm skeptical. Running desktop Linux, in my experience, was easier, and I gave up that quest when I bought my first iBook with Panther.

If Apple will support the OS on generic systems, then maybe I would consider a so-called "clone". Apple's hardware tech support is quite good though, and to me that is worth a few extra dollars.
