Hey guys -
 
My mid-2007 MacBook recently died and I'm looking to replace it with an ultra-portable. I love the 2013 Air but I can't live with the terrible 1440x900 screen resolution, and hence am looking to buy the Vaio Pro 13 for its 1080p screen solution.
 
The specifications are summarized here -

It has a Core i5 1.7ghz 4200U processor (Haswell) with Intel Integrated HD 4400 graphics. 
 
Wanted to get your views on how Hackintosh friendly would this configuration be?

Not ready for prime time yet. Wait for official Haswell support from Apple and save a lot of headache.

 

All the best!

Thanks for your response.

 

Considering that the Air has the same processor and chipset, shouldn't this be compatible with Mountain Lion as well? Or are they using a modified version of OS X for the Air?

 

Mavericks will bring official support right?
