Can I run "Mac OS X Snow Leopard" on my ASUS instead of "windows"? If yes, will I face any sort of troubles with my computer? is it possible that I'd loose some of my computer features, such as webcam, bluetooth if I did run Mac Snow Leopard?

Not sure about Now Leopard, but you can certainly load Mac OS, according to; http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?s=2f22885f9163b146bc56f637cf0bc712&showtopic=70928

Have a trawl there & see if anyone's been successful!  :)

Good Luck!

The short and quick answer is "No".

The long and complicated answer is "It's possible" but you will need some computer skills/experience to be able to do it, and even then not all components will run correctly if at all. If you're interested in tinkering with your notebook to get Snow Leopard running on it, then Hackintosh is what you want. Learn all about it at http://www.hackintosh.com/

I wish you good luck if you choose to accept this mission. You're going to need it. :)

Are you a noobie to the internet or computers in general? This is not the forum to be asking this type of question. You want to pitch this at a hackintosh site, probably like InsanelyMac or OSx86. Here they are:

http://www.osx86.net/forum.php

And noob, please be advised that by installing OS X (with or without a legitimate installer) on your Asus, at worse you may risk damaging your components (from overheating perhaps?), at best you may end up with non-functional graphics, sleep, sound, wireless, LAN, due to no driver support.
