Samsung NF310?

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried hackintoshing this model?

I have high hopes for this one, seeing as N310 has 100% compatibility on charts.

Any experiences?

hi,

I'm thinking of getting one...

I can choose between a nf310, n510, x125 and a n150plus

 

Hope I get it next week.

I'll write an report about it..

The NF310 looks like an awesome machine. In comparison, the N310 can just barely handle video playback and Skype, and has terrible sound. But the N310 is like a single core version of a Mac Mini, so it's quite compatible with OS X out of the box. The NF310 uses GMA3150 graphics which isn't in any of the current Apple machines and so isn't supported natively. The GMA3150 is what most of the new netbooks are using.

 

There's some work being done (re:Melkort; what a champ!) to find a way to make these GMA3150 netbooks work with OS X and I think the current status is that it works without graphic acceleration; but the fact that it isn't natively supported means that it won't be able to take raw updates, and that complete solutions may be a while in coming, if ever. And they'll remain a hack (thru-hoop running req'd) unless of course Apple decides to cough up a machine using this chip.

 

So right now, you get to chose between great compatibility on a crappy machine, or crappy compatibility on a great machine. Though you never know how things will evolve...

Thanks for the info. What are the chances that the new chip will be natively supported? What was the track record, or why did they use the last chipset?

1. That's totally unknown.

2. The 945G chipset has been a very popular low cost Intel chipset with integrated graphics solution for smaller machines, for both Mac and PC. Not a great performer but perfectly adequate for light office work.

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "

              <array>

                      <key>Comment</key>

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
