…You can Mac for cheap with a Hackintosh?


Like the looks of Apple’s new OS, but still trying to stay loyal to Windows?

Then check out Lifehacker’s Hackintosh guide for information on how to build a high-end computer that’s confused about its identity using OSx86.

    The build consists of a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a total of 4GB of RAM (four sticks at 1GB each), an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe motherboard, a GeForce 7300GT (the same basic video card that comes installed in the default Mac Pro configuration), a 500GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and an Antec Sonata case.

So what’s all of this going to cost you?

$800, plus the cost of the OS.

Not bad for a system whose closest competitor is the $600 Mac Mini with half the specs.
