I've Never Tried Apple Products Before Mostly Because I'm Broke So Next Best Thing............ Hackintosh!!!


So here I am writing this post from what I call my "HacBook Pro". Its an older Hp Elite laptop. It sports a dual core i-5 with hyper threading, 4gigs ddr3 ram, Nvidia nvs 3100m graphics, and a bunch of little options as it was a business computer in its early life. I've always thought building a Hackintosh would be a little out of my league but when I have an itch I scratch it.


So installing OS X turned out to be the easy part. I just watched a few Youtube videos clicked a few links and was off to the races with USB boot drive ready. I was all sorts of happy that it installed just fine and I was loaded into my new OS X but not really much worked. No wifi, ethernet, sound, and usb would not detect even the simplest drive. Even now I still have other little things to tackle such at battery info drivers and brightness control. In the end after a few days of testing drivers and finding the rights ones for me I am more than happy with what I am left with. This is a functional stable Hacbook now. There are some quirks such as using a usb wifi and having to use external headphones or a small usb sound adaptor. For others like me though who are scrapping the bottom of every dollar they get this is more than acceptable trade of to spending an extra $1000 for a legit apple product. I have to admit seeings this Apple logo upon the boot of my laptop is more than enough for me.
