Samsung Series 7 Hacked To Run OS X Lion

If you are hearing someone saying that he runs OS X Lion on PC, that is nothing special. But you will love this one, a hacker gets his Samsung Series 7 hacked to run OS X Lion.

Samsung’s Series 7, originally intended for Windows 7, a hacker on tonymacx86 forums  show off a demo video that he runs Lion relatively smoothly on Series 7, but the big issue is an external monitor is needed to display the video. The user highlights the tools needed:

8GB USB KEY, mini-HDMI to HDMI cable/adapter, USB Keyboard and mouse. After you make a UniBeast USB key you have some space still left on it so I made a folder and downloaded MultiBeast 4.1.0: Lion Edition.

If you’ve got a Series 7 laying around and are tired of the bleh Windows, you should definitely try this hack out (if you’ve got the technical know-how). With specs close to the MacBook Air — an 11.6-inch display, 64GB SSD, and i5 processor — this device seems pretty perfect to run full on OS X in a mobile setting. It also gives you a little more horsepower than an iPad 2, though that’s like comparing Apples and Oranges.

For all of the technical details, hit up the tonymacx86 forums.  We’re going to keep an eye out as this project gets more bug fixes, specifically the screen issue. Luckily, the developer says he is committed to working on this project.
