Hello everyone, let me start off by saying I love my Mac and Apple products. I was thinking of buying an iMac once the newer ones come out but money is becoming an issue for me. I'm actually trying to save money so I can move out on my own. But a better computer comes first. I need one for 3D graphics (Maya), animation and editing. My MacBook Pro is still good enough... if the USB ports weren't messed up. But I can use something better and that's why I was planning on buying an iMac. But today I was thinking that maybe I can save money by building a Hackintosh instead. I already have Mac OSX Lion (needed to upgrade to run Maya) and a mouse. The only thing I'm worried about is if Hackintosh are reliable. I don't know if I'll have issues with it and hardware not being compatible, and all of that. I plan to keep this baby for a couple of years. Any advice? Be honest.
