First off not sure if this is the right section for this post.... (if it isn't then by all means move it. I'm new here) So I'm in the market for a new machine... And with new iMacs around the corner I was thinking thats probably the best bet for me. But then a friend mentioned to me why don't I make a hackintosh? And I've been giving the idea some thought and have realized that would be a good use of money for me. Due to the fact that I already own a external monitor, Lion, Keyboard, & Mouse. Now obviously I've never done this before so I have no idea what to do. I've heard it's fairly simple to accomplish you just need to follow the steps correctly is all. Now my budget lies somewhere around 1100$ and that is to be spent all on parts (like I said I already own a KB/Mouse/Monitor) So I know the parts you can buy for a hackintosh are most of the time far superior to those that come in a iMac. My only concern is... Is there any room for irreversible failure? and is it all dependent on which parts you buy?
