This thread has been in the works for a long time now, so this means that I finally got around to it! Let me first start by saying, that overall, I am probably 90% satisfied with this computer (so far), and while that's not 100%, it's still very positive, 4.5 stars of 5. I purchased an OpenStar 3.2GHZ Quad, 8gb DDR Hackintosh osx86 from ebay. Paid $1099 for it (not including shipping). This included some very decent hardware, 8gb of DDR800 ram, 512mb of Vram by way of a NVIDIA 9800 GT, also 1 TB of disk memory. It also was advertised as shipping with a hard copy of OSX 10.5. The good: Super fast fast fast. Fan runs quietly and CPU doesn't heat up the room. (like some die hard mac fanbois guaranteed me it would ) Software updater works (unlike the Psystar clone system). The neutral: Internet sharing via Ethernet-in and airport wireless-out does not work (I used to use my g5 for my wireless in my room). First computer I received from the seller did not work which caused me to go but, I received exceptional customer service from him, and in the end I had to mail back the not working computer (at my expense) and he shipped me new working machine. The bad: Computer did not ship with a hard copy of Leopard as advertised, it only had leopard installed on the harddrive which made me go I complained and he refunded me $99 on ebay. So the total price I paid was around $1100. 1099 (orig price) + 40 (orig shipping) + 40 (shipping 1st comp back) - $99 refund = $1080. An equivalent mac pro would have cost god knows how much, and frankly, right now, I can't afford that. The worst: My computer doesn't always start up. It will stall out before the Apple spinning hardware test. Must be a driver issue, but either way, my solution is to (a) never shut down, or (b) power cycle and try again. It's annoying and worriesome, but so far, it hasn't been a deal breaker. Okay, so this is a good start, I will post more information and feel free to ask questions. I would love to see other posts from users/owners, I know they exist out there. Let's all come together and learn how to maintain these quirky FAST cheap machines. I'm going to really be disappointed in all of you from Horseville i.e. fanboi naysayers, if you talk out yo azz without having any actual clone experience under your belt. For the record this is like my 15th apple computer, and my 2nd mac clone. My first mac clone was a UMAX Supermac C600, which i bought when i was 13 for the same reason that I bought this one: it was cheaper. Cheers!
