I converted an MSI WInd, mostly for fun, and wouldn't recommend it. 
Even with all the bugs worked out (and there are many, ie don't 
expect the trackpad to work that well and forget the webcam unless 
you want to do a lot of bug fixin"). What you end up in the end is 
just a really lousy mac. It makes you appreciate that a good bit of 
why people buy macs is the design and hardware quality, not the OS. 
Thats my .02 cents... I have a dell netbook for travel and its much 
easier to use as a windows machine than messing with it! -Tom
