You have 4 options (from IMO best to worst):

  • Get a real Mac
  • Get a newer VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox and virtualize OS X
  • Install OS X in a separate partition on your current PC or build a dedicated hackintosh
  • MacInCloud

I am still in the learning stage and searching for job as well so for me this tree house hard to pay so it may be burden to rent a mac. Any other solutions. I tried to install MAC through VMware but it make laptop slow down and it ask for update because x code dont works on older version of OSX. It has asking 10.0 version or more.

If you plan on virtualizing, then it's going to slow down your laptop. There's no getting around that. You can download the latest VirtualBox for free, which I'm pretty sure can virtualize the latest OS X. Your only other free option would be to attempt to install OS X in a separate partition on your physical drive, but this is not recommended
