Ok guys I have a slight dilemma going on, I gave my mother my 1 yr old mac book since she now lives in South America and her little netbook though adequate for her use was missing features (dvd player). Being Macless for the first time since 2002 is a bit annoying especially since I bought Lion right before she left and tried it out. I'm using her old netbook in the mean time, but I would like to get back to my OSX. I love OSX but I am also a gamer who has been mostly doing it through consoles with an itch to return to PC gaming. My reason for considering on building a Hackintosh is that I can return to playing PC games and used OSX for everything else at a relatively low price. The Mac-mini is more than enough for me but I can't see myself paying $600 for something that not only doesn't pay Blu-rays but not even dvd's either. Going all windows is not an option since as nice as Windows 7 is I prefer to use the Mac OS. The downside for the Hackintosh is getting everything ready and then maintaining it to run properly and the other option being its price with its lack of keyboard and blu ray player. Finally which ever route I take I will be hooking it up to a 42" tv that is in the living room but I'm hoping it will be adequate enough to use as a monitor once I upgrade. If anyone has hooked up to a tv near that size I would like your opinion on the matter. Thanks in advance.
