I've got a couple of questions about this and hackintoshes in general. 1. with 12gb of ram, is it really necessary? I've seen a lot of comparative speed tests that clock computers with higher specs as hacked macs against real macs, and they tend to be barely a little higher. Why is this? 2. What's the deal with updates? Is it really hard to update a hacked mac? How stable is it comparatively? I really want to build a hackintosh, and I'd end up buying mostly new parts aside from my hard drive, cd drive and video card (geforce 250...i think it's compatable?) if not I may just purchase either an imac and sell my PC or a macbook pro and sell my netbook.
It's probably already been said, but apple needs to keep things proprietary. I still think people would buy macs if OSx were available for PCs just because of aesthetics, but definitely less. Maybe if the OSx86 project gets more user friendly and easier to install jobs will have to rethink his strategy and make it available and with lower price models with less aesthetic bells and whistles. Just a thought.
