A relatively inexpensive computer will run the Mac OS Mojave.
About $300 US . you’ll need an m.2 SSD or an adapter to a standard SATA drive.
This computer has complete compatibility to Apple and
can use the Apple store for upgrades.

Note that Clover is used to prepare a USB thumb drive
to install Mac OS to LattePanda Alpha. A UEFI partition is created by Clover
on the destination drive. Then Mac OS is installed in the regular way.

Background: Apple began using USB thumb drives to install Mac OS when it first introduced
laptop computers that lacked a DVD player.


Two videos to explain...

Install Mac OS with Clover
