ASUS U43JC-X1 Bamboo - A good hackintosh candidate?

Hey guys, what are your insights on the ASUS U43JC-X1 as being a potential hackintosh candidate? Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003V4AK4I


And here are the specs:


Intel Core-i5-450M Processor 2.4GHz

Nvidia GeForce 310M with 1 GB DDR3 Dedicated VRAM and Optimus Technology (switchable with Intel HD Graphics)

4 GB of DDR3 1066MHz DRAM (2 GB x 2 slots), 4 GB Max

Intel Wireless-N 1000 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless LAN

Built-in 2.0 MP Webcam

14-Inch HD (1366x768) LED Display; HDMI Port; USB 3.0 port; 8 cell 5600mAh battery


The hardware seems to be very similar to that of the MacBook Pros with the processor and GPU combination. However, what I'm most concerned about is whether or not the video will work as intended. As far as I know, there is native Intel HD Graphics support in OS X now that the new MacBook Pros have it, but will I be able to use the Nvidia G310M in any way?


Thanks for your help!
