    Upgrading 2006 17" MBP to M1?

    Hey, I know this looks like a stupid question but it's something I've genuinely been curious about. I have several 17" MBPs from 2006 that are pretty much useless due to their internal hardware, but I really love the design, size, and keyboard of those pre-unibody Macs. I was thinking of...

    MP All Models Can I drive a UP2715K monitor from single DisplayPort port?

    FYI I'm running a hackintosh, but the Mac Pro forum seemed the closest match. I'm currently using a Radeon Pro card with 4 DisplayPort outputs to drive two UP2715K monitors. Each monitor requires two ports. It would be nice to upgrade to a mid-range 6000 series GPU without needing to pay the...

    A custom made M1 MacBook with touchscreen and many ports? (video)

    I thought it may be interesting to share a video from a guy I follow, who managed to fit the internals of a MacBook Air into the body of a Windows laptop with touch screen. This is more a proof of concept than a perfectly usable device, but it works (including the touch screen) and made me think...

I enjoy the Mac ecosystem, but my main Mac is a Hackintosh (Similar specs to a low end 2013 Mac Pro but better GPU) and my MacBooks are a 13" and 17" from 2009 and 2010, respectively...

    MP 1,1-5,1 What if... the community designed an updated CPU tray for cMP 5,1?

    OK, so this is a crazy, off the wall idea... but what if it was possible to design and implement a replacement PCB that would fit the standard CPU tray and heat sink of a classic Mac Pro 5,1? If you don't mind me summarizing 557 pages and over a million page views from the "Waiting for Mac Pro...

    I have a deal on getting a Mac Pro Late 2013 Quad Core with 16gb ram for $900, is this worth it? I mean I could go hackintosh and all but I would like my Apple Experience to work seemlessly.
