Hi from miami, Fl USA
I recently started researching Hackintosh. Have made a couple Hackintosh laptop with dual boot window 7.
A friend of mine is a Apple "fan"atic and wants my help in building a hackintosh for him which I think is a sweet idea would love to put that into my list of "s**t" i built over the years.
I have done my research and feel that I know little still about building a hackintosh. Software wise with the OSx I do understand after leopard they completely pushed out powerpc (AMD processing) for intel processor. So I do know the build will be around Intel (i5.i3, atom) but other hardware wise I do not know. I have done some more research on the graphic, they do say I can use almost any graphic card but to make things less complex to go with Intel base graphic especially if not gaming which my friend might not do.
I am glad to see a forum group dedicated in hackintosh.
I wouldn't mind for any advice
I believe what we might be going for is a Mac mini
But I recently found a Power PC G5 series in a dump site and decide to take it home with me.
No idea where I can go from here but this adventure is going places
case with full accessory including screen (screen has a broken back hinge that props it up, don't think it is repairable since it is a part that takes the full load of the 23 inch screen)
