So my need for a MacBook Pro has reached a level of desperation that I never thought I'd reach: I've been browsing and configuring PC laptops from the likes of Dell, Sony and Alienware. Considering which one would be the best to make a Hackintosh out of. And GUESS WHAT!!! The first two sneaky folks start off with a baseline configuration that looks cheap but SUCKS. Once I add decent NVIDIA graphics, a big enough hard drive, enough RAM, and a processor better than the standard crummy 2.0GHz, the price jumps from $799 to $3,000+ in a HURRY. (Not including, of course, the $129 for a retail copy of Leopard.) But if I had $3,000 to spend, I'd just buy a real MacBook Pro instead and wouldn't be screwing around with a Hackintosh to begin with. Never mind that! I guess Steve will be getting his $3,000 EVENTUALLY. If I could just find the goddamn money somewhere.
