I am new to this forum and just had to post in this thread.
I run a Hacbook (Dell Insprion 1525) and it runs like a dream. i have a good desktop machine (e8400, 4gb of ram and 9800GT) that I am considering installing OS X on also. I have always been an extreme hate of mac fan boys. apple hardware looks sweet in alot of cases, but that is not a reflection on component quality. Dollar for Dollar, I could build a desktop that would spank a mac pro and still save a heap of cash. I can't afford a mac pro, plain and simple. I am a power user and currently run linux ( and anyone who thinks linux is hard to use is kidding themselves) as I am over windows and their poor product. OS X is stable because it's unix and that the platform is so closed.
Hackintoshes will always exist when the price for apple hardware is still so high. Would I but a legit mac? If i could afford to expend that amount on a PC yeah. It would be hard to justify it compared to the monster i could build for the same amount of money.
hackintoshes have brought me and no doubt many more closer to being legitimate mac owners. I personally think they are a good thing.
