    OSX is very critical with hardware. You can't just slap OSX on some generic hardware. (Even on supported boards, some users still experience problems.) The ad doesn't say what kind of motherboard it uses, so not enough information to determine whether it will be possible to work.

    I'd pick a mobo model that has an available DSDT. Makes your life easier.

    No, it uses HD2000 graphics and most likely a mobile chipset because that is a mobile chip.
