  1. Hey everyone I've just gone back to college after a few years working IT support to study media. Our entire course is digital so I'll be using loads of MS Office and just general programs like iTunes for myself, chrome etc. As our course is digital it's recommended we use a laptop instead of pen and paper (how times have changed right?). So I figured it's a pretty good excuse to finally get a hackintosh machine going and learn a little about OSX. Last time I built a hackintosh was back in 2009 so it's been quite a while. My question to you all is, what's a great out-the-box ultraportable or netbook to start with (I'm not looking to break the bank either!) and also which version of Lion/Mountain Lion is now the top dog to use and stick with? Also, if it helps, is there a particular loader that I would be best off using (I know this will probably link back to whichever laptop I decide to get). I'm looking for an ultraportable as it'll be slung around with me in classes a lot, so I need something that won't take up too much space and is also nice and light. Sorry for the VERY nooby question, but I'm a broke college student and kind of need something I KNOW will work - I can't go out on a whim and buy something that looks like it should work only to find out that it doesn't. I'm sure you've all been there once too! Really looking forward to hearing the replies!
  2. I've installed iPC onto a partition on my hard drive, mainly out of curiosity. I didn't expect the base system to go on, but it has and seems to be running fairly sweet! However, I've got a few problems I need to fix, and was wondering if any of you can point me in the right direction. 1) Keyboard/Trackpad doesn't work. I've seen the thread with the Kexts, but I have no idea which one to go for. 2) Wifi/ethernet. Main problem here is I don't know what wireless card and ethernet ports it uses, so if i could find out, I'll go hunting for the correct kexts. 3) The ATi HD3200 isn't working. At least, I don't think so. The resolution won't change from 1024x768. If I can get these fixed and have it running at least mostly right, I'll wipe the partition table and just run OSX. Thanks in advance for any help, it'll be much appreciated.
  3. ATI Radeon HD 3200 OsX86

    Will this work in Leapard 10.5.6?
