(Before I begin I do realize that this isn't the site to ask about hackintosh related things. I just feel like this site will be less biased one way or another, And I will get better advice) So, I have begun to look at getting a new computer since my last one died on me a few months ago. I had originally planned on getting a Mac mini as that suited my needs just fine and was one of the few macs in my price range. After the 2014 update was announced and stores began selling out of their remaining 2012 stock, I was left with no option to upgrade the ram, which is something I feel is very important. I began to look at building a hackintosh, and while it seemed very sophisticated for me, I loved the ability to uprade any of the hardware any time I wanted. One thing about the hacks is that all the features of OSX may not work properly, and upgrading to a new version of OSX would be very difficult. Since I wouldn't be doing anything that would really require a very powerful machine, would a mini (500gb drive and 8gb ram) really be better?
