Windows fans can build their own computers when they can’t find one in stores to match their needs, but custom-made Macs are much harder to put together, as Apple doesn’t like having its software and hardware separated. But if you’ve got the time, and really need your beefy computer running macOS, than you should…
Even if you’re a Windows fan, you’ve probably thought about trying OS X.

High-Def Flash video is a stretch on some hacktintosh netbooks, but Flash 10.1 brings it into the realm of possibility. I just installed it on my MSI Wind running Leopard, and damn: HD YouTube and Vimeo videos were almost watchable.
When Apple killed Atom processor support in the Snow Leopard 10.6.2 update, it was one of the first times they'd actively tried to stop hobbyist hackintoshing. It was also sort of a dick move! Luckily, it's not going to stick.
Psystar's Rebel EFI software promises that you can install OS X on any PC with a Core 2 Duo, Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor for $50, but we are discovering that you will probably end up getting screwed royally.
Here's the pitch: a 10-inch, almost-pocketable computer running Snow Leopard, the latest, greatest version of OS X. It costs just $300. Sound good? Here's how to make your own.
