I have a desktop based off the boot 132 and it is smoking fast! I have a GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R motherboard with a Nvidia 8800GT video card, 4 gigs ram, Intel 3.0 ghz E8400 dual core processor.. I am so happy with it I just can't even begin to explain.

The greatest thing about it is that it's been rock solid, better than any OS I have run and I have run them all.

very similar and there are a lot of great sites out there like insanelymac.com that have real good guides kinda like we have here.

Cost wise for me was the best part. I took the system I already had and put OSX on it. Total cost for me was just the price of Leopard.

However, if you are starting from scratch then I would go over and look over some of the others experiences to see what works for you. You could probably do the setup I have for between 600-900 depending on how good you are at finding good deals on parts.

I build my own PC's so it was just a bunch of parts i put together myself. Building a Hackintosh can be fun and fairly easy if you purchase hardware that is known to be supported already or drivers have been modified for. I am sure if you take the time to wade through the forum over there you will find out a lot of good information.

I would look at what worked good for some over there and then go for it. It does seem a bit messy but then there is information there on a LOT of different setups. Here we deal mainly with a small group of Mini's which makes for a much cleaner forum.

Decide what you are willing to spend and do a little research. It could be a lot of fun!

ya so is yours fully supported like the mini is cuz if so i really haven't seen much of a difference between this and my friends macbook air except the obvious screen size and if i get a fully working computer that is faster than say an imac than i will be a happy person and i imagine dual booting with two hardrives is like super easy
