You can't install Mac OS onto it but if you get a Mac you will be able to dual boot it with Windows using their bootcamp software.

Yes, Mac OS, despite now running on the same hardware as a PC, will not install on a PC, as it needs a particular ROM chip to be present on the motherboard.

Having said that, someone did recently sell a Dell laptop on Ebay that was running Mac OS

You will need to use a mac to run Mac OS X natively. However if you are planning to try it out the above will let you learn.
