Am planning to start developing Android and Iphone/Ipad applications. Before that i came to realized that developing iOS applications is only possible on Mac Machines. Am looking for ways to have Windows 7 and Mac Software on one laptop for my development projects so that i don't have to buy two different machines.

At the moment i don't know if its possible to install Mac on Windows or vice versa. I hope there may be a better way to get those two operating systems on one laptop. I decided to ask you guys the best way i can get the two operating systems on one laptop.

Thanks for your help.

The FAQ lists possible alternatives like Super User or maybe, but you have to check yourself is the question is topical there and has been asked before (very likely). – Sven Oct 17 '12 at 12:32

Buy a Mac and dual boot (Bootcamp) or virtualise Windows. This is the only legal, reliable solution right now as you can not legally run OSX on anything but Apple hardware.

Thanks for your reply. I have a little question. With the "dual boot" OR "Windows Virtualisation", can i do anything i want in Windows without any limitations? – Eddy Freeman Oct 17 '12 at 12:56
Yes, you can, it runs as a standard windows laptop, the only limitation being the keyboard layout is a little odd, but you can plug in a USB keyboard. With VMWare Fusion you can even install it as dualboot, then load the dualboot partition as a VM, then you can flick between OS' instantaneously by flicking four fingers across the touchpad (I'm not a fanboi, I swear...) – Alex Berry Oct 17 '12 at 14:17
