  1. Please could I get some advice on a custon build?

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. =] I haven’t been able to find people who have researched the exact hardware i will be using, so it is hard to say for some of it. I assume you suggest that laptop as it is known for being easy to install a Mac os on? I appreciate the time and effort you put in but do you know of any more powerful laptop's that might work well? That’s roughly the same kind of power i have in my current laptop but i need something much more powerful for the work i will be doing. Thanks again for your comment whether you can help further or not.
  2. Hi there, I have read through the rules and it says only to ask a question such as this if I have googled and searched the wiki and this forum to no avail, which is rather frustratingly the case I’m afraid. I need a Mac to run things like Final Cut Pro for my Uni work but I can’t afford one. I’m looking into building a hackintosh by buying a custom built laptop and installing snow leopard on it. I think I’m ok in terms of sheer power, (I’m quite a geek with windows based PC's so I know some technical stuff, but this is my first venture into building a hackintosh and I’m a bit lost tbh) and from what I can gather I’m heading in the right direction by getting a mother board with an Intel chipset and an Nvidia video card with Sata hard drives, but I can’t afford to shell out over £1000 on this without the knowledge that it will almost certainly work. I know that no one can give me that answer exactly, but i wondered if anyone could pass comment on the likelihood of the hardware I have picked out working as a hackintosh? I have googled, searched here and the wiki but can’t seem to find advice on the components of my set up. They are; Clevo W150ERQ Gaming Notebook 15.6" Full HD 1920x1080 Display w/ Built-in 2.0 MP Webcam, Fingerprint Sensor, HDMI Port, Li-Ion Battery, & Universal AC Adapter Intel® Core™ i7-3720QM Mobile Processor 2.60 GHz 6M Smart Cache, Max Turbo Freq. 3.60 GHz Mobile Intel HM77 Express Chipset Mainboard 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-1333 SODIMM Memory NVIDIA GT 650M 1GB PCIe Video 500GB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive x 2 8X DVD±R/RW/4X + DL Super-Multi Drive (NB-373-DVDRW) Built-in 3D Premium Surround Sound Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 - 802.11A/B/G/N 300Mbps Dual-Band Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combo [intel WiDi Ready] I don’t want someone to walk me through an installation or anything, I’m fairly confident once I have the hardware I can do everything else without any further help, I’m just worried about shelling out a fortune to end up with a machine that is useless too me. Any help is much appreciated and thanks in advance.
