I've done some reading up on the lawsuits pending, the legality and enforceability of the EULA, etc. Not a lot, but some. I also am aware that Apple makes all of their money off the hardware, not the OS sales.
All of that aside, while we are violating the EULA by using a non-Apple system, this is hard to enforce and the legality is somewhat questionable, it seems.
Buying an upgrade version of OS X and using it without the initial core disc is flat-out illegal, and much more likely to land you in hot water if caught. Regardless of whether the upgrade version has the core with it, or is simply a collection of upgraded files only, it's still without question illegal.
Suck it up and buy the full version. Compared to Microsoft OS products, OS X is cheap. Also, these forums support legally purchased OS X copies, unless the threads I read about this are wrong.
Using an upgrade-only version without the initial core license is no different than using a Torrent version without buying it at all.

You only need the $29 version to create a Hackintosh. If you're doing a few the 49$ might be more appropriate. No Hackintosh is legitimate as far as Apple is concerned but if you like the OS enough to do this I think you should throw a few bucks Apples way. I did.
