The biggest obstacle to most generic computers from running Mac OS X on their hardware has to do with UEFI. This is a new system that was developed to replace the original BIOS systems that allowed computers to boot up. Apple has been using specific extensions to the UEFI that is not found in most PC hardware. Over the past couple of years, this has become less of an issue as most systems adopt the new boot mechanisms for the hardware. A good source for lists of known compatible computers and hardware components can be found on the OSx86 Project site.
Note that the lists are based upon the various versions of OS X because each version has a differing level of support for hardware, especially with older computer hardware not being able to run on the newer versions of OS X.

@Segfault>>I need to update my Garmin GPS and I do not do Windows.
I will warn you that I do not condone this, so please don't try it. However, for educational purposes, it is possible to install OSX in VirtualBox... you need a Hackintosh install disc to do this though. For information on this, have a look here:Lifehacker "How to Run Mac OS X Inside Windows Using VirtualBox".
Ignore the fact that they are using VirtualBox in Windows, because the same process will work in Ubuntu too.
