While my macbook pro is loaded up, and doing fine...for fun, I'm thinking about building myself a "hackintosh" desktop....something with some REAL power behind it....
Has anyone else here played with one of these? I figure with multiple, multi-threaded processors, tons of ram....render times would be almost nil.....
The hackintosh's I've seen are always loaded with bugs and few run well. You better off buying a Mac if you like OSX.
Otherwise Win7 Pro Runs all the Adobe software nicely.
I disagree. I've built two and they have barely any issues. The only one that's slightly annoying is not having the ability to sleep. Otherwise I have full optical audio, 3d, cuda support, etc. And my quad core (8 threads) w/24GB ram crushes in Lightroom/Photoshop.
If you attempt to build one just make sure you do your homework on hardware. Most problems can be avoided by choosing configurations that have been tried and working. visit tonymac's web site for help.
