My wife's mac mini is done for, at least according to her. I had recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkcenter M53. Any chance that could serve as a hackintosh? This is one of the tiny ones, limited things I could change out on it, if any. But I don't mind adding USB dongles to make it work! Could go with or without wifi.

2MB Cache
Processor Core: Quad-Core
Memory: 4GB (supports up to 8GB)

Hard Drive: 500GB SATA 7200RPM
Optical Drive: No

The HD Graphics on Pentium CPUs are unsupported in Mac OS X - so unless there's a way to add a separate graphics card (which there isn't), you won't be able to run it on that system.
