I currently have a couple of hackintoshes with the following specs The spec of my lowest spec hackintosh is: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3GHz CPU 4GB DDR2 Ram (2 x 2GB) 500GB 7200rpm Hard Drive 512MB nVidia 8800GT GPU My other hackintosh is as follows: Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 3.33GHz CPU 6GB DDR2 Ram (3 x 2GB) 64GB Crucial C300 SSD 1TB Samsung F3 7200RPM 1GB nVidia GTX285 GPU Both systems are running the latest version of Snow Leopard and have no issues and I use both systems with Dell 2407WFP's. I'm starting my own business over the next few weeks so I'm looking to replace both systems in the next month or so, partly because I'd like to move to genuine Apple hardware and I'm wondering what to go for. My options (due to budget constraints are: 1. Base model Mini with third party Ram and SSD 2. Base model 21.5" iMac with third party 8GB Ram and SSD(?) 3. Core i5 2.9GHz Hackintosh with 8GB DDR3, SSD, nVidia GPU My main issue with the mini is the outdated hardware (2.4GHz C2D compared to the 3GHz C2D I currently have). My main issue with the iMac is the screen size as I'm used to using 24" screens My main issue with the Hackintosh is it's not genuine Apple hardware. Another option I thought of was trying to find a couple of 24" iMacs but they'll still be older hardware so just looking for some advice really as I'm really torn.
