I'm going to get an Acer computer. But I'm a huge Apple supporter. Can I install Tiger instead of Windows?

You can't install OSX Tiger on a PC. It's forbidden by the MAC Community.

You must by a Mac computer to use MacOSX. Even if you install it on a PC, you will not have any drivers because the OS only recognize MAC hardware.

MacBook are equiped with only an Intel GMA 950 graphics chip. This deliver poor performances in every 3D applications and games.

It steals memory from the system RAM to make its own VRAM. This slow down the computer.

If you plan to run graphically intensive applications, you are better to go with the MacBook Pro with the ATi Mobility Radeon X1600.

I won't use it for gaming. That's why I have a desktop.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
