I guess its time that I gave you guys an update on my Hackintosh.
The machine is going great.. Here is a screenshot (left)…
Its amazing why I didn’t think of doing this sooner. Being an Apple fan-boy, I never really supported this kind of thing until Apple announced the latest Mac Pro.
I recently noticed that the computer was starting to lag a bit in performance; especially when the system wakes from sleep. Considering that the my old mac mini had 8GB of ram and this Hackintosh has only 4GB; I thought that it was time for an upgrade. Yes.. 16GB should be fine. 😛
In addition to the ram, we got an Apple keyboard (full-size & wired). Its an amazing keyboard. Its not a mechanical keyboard but it has such an awesome feel. Its feel mechanical.
Anyways, back to the Hackintosh. Currently after installation, here is the configuration.
Future upgrades include an SSD, possibly more ram and a graphics card.
After installation of the ram, we had to update the motherboard with the latest bios to get it to work properly. But I guess that is what you get with a Hackintosh. Like many who have done these machines before me have said, nothing is straight forward as with a normal mac. There will be issues that need attending to. Its pretty much like running a Hot Rod; a blend of various parts to make something cool and unique.
