First, let me say that I am a long time lurker, first time poster. I have read this board pretty intensely since I started thinking about getting a dell mini for travel usage. Thanks for all the wonderful info! What a tremendous resource.
I'm planning on hackintoshing my mini to run OS X, upgrading my RAM, and upping my SSD
. With all that in mind, is it better to purchase a mini that already has the upgrades installed? Or have you found that it is better (and more cost effective) to upgrade piece by piece on your own after buying a lower end base-model?
I'm planning on buying an SDHC card and keeping it installed in the computer to act as a "secondary hard drive" where I can save my docs, and pictures I take on my DSLR while out in the field. Since SDHC media is cheaper than SSD
media, would there be any point in upgrading the SSD
harddrive besides gaining 8-16 gb of storage space? I wish they made SSD
adapters where one could just load in a bunch of SDHC cards! Man, that would be sweet.
Lastly, I am incredibly new to this whole "hackintosh" thing. If I've never done something like this before, is it too difficult to attempt?
Thanks for any light you can shed! I'll definitely keep goign through all the posts on this board to find answers and ideas too. Thanks!
