The Always Up-to-Date Guide to Building a Hackintosh [OS X 10.8.2]

The Best Hackintosh Laptops of 2012 - For Mountain Lion It's very difficult to find a laptop that can easily be turned into Hackintosh. As mentioned in our Hackintosh compatibility guide, most laptops aren't good Hackintoshes, because the compact design of laptops makes it very difficult to replace non-compatible parts. With this in mind, I've compiled a list of Hackintosh-compatible laptops, all of which can run OS X Mountain Lion without the need to replace any hardware. LATEST UPDATE (APRIL 18, 2014): Check out our updated list, The Best Hackintosh Laptops of 2013-2014. HP ProBook 4530s ($500-$950) What You Get: The HP ProBook 4530s is a standard sized laptop with a 15.6-inch screen, and a pretty great keyboard. Hackintosh Ability: The ProBook 4530s is pretty much the gold standard of Hackintosh laptops. Unlike most laptops, setting up Mac OS X on the ProBook 4530s is pretty easy. However, even once you get Mountain Lion working, not everything is perfect. Resources: Guide to Installing Mountain Lion on HP Probook | Forum | FAQ

Rainmeter - Encoded v1.2.3 by ~lilshizzy on deviantART Smart Playlists to Manage Podcasts on an iPod Shuffle I bought a 2 GByte iPod Shuffle for $50. I have resisted using iTunes because iPods are usually too expensive and, like anything you carry with you, they often need to be replaced. I listen mainly to podcasts which I remove after hearing, so the 2 Gbytes is not a problem for me. Here’s how I use the iPod shuffle for podcasts: Because I want to go through all my podcasts just once, I set the slider switch to the middle setting to disable the random play option. The iPod Shuffle is quite weird because it has no screen. The big breakthrough was learning how to set up and use Smart Playlists in iTunes. When I have listened to all the podcasts currently loaded on the iPod I connect the iPod to my computer and open iTunes. I then manually remove all the old podcasts on the iPod. When my iPod is all charged up I remove it from the computer. Because it’s summer, some of my podcast shows are on vacation (namely “Quirks and Quarks” and “In Our Time”).

How Do I Upgrade My Hackintosh to Mac OS X Lion? I think (I mean logically) all you should have to do is follow these steps, but when you go to Install Lion, just point to a clean partition for it to install on. You should be able to follow the instructions for a standard Snow Leopard Hackintosh install but using the Lion cd (see Lifehacker how-to) and iBoot. Also: manners much, how about saying please? @belgium @ashilm Please stop talking about things you don't know anything about. You are spreading misinformation. It is NOT POSSIBLE YET to install Lion with iBoot and MultiBeast. However the great developers of Kakewalk have a solution! I encourage you to go to [] and check out their compability list.

CustoMac It's an amazing time once again to build a computer. Intel's "Ivy Bridge" CPUs alongside with the latest motherboards are the fastest and most compatible consumer components we've ever tested. There is native support for Thunderbolt, NVIDIA GeForce 6xx "Kepler" graphics cards, and Ivy Bridge in OS X Mountain Lion 10.8. On the pro front, Apple hasn't updated their Mac Pro since 2010, but Intel's "Sandy Bridge-E/EP" has native kernel support. Socket 2011 CPUs are available in quad core, hexacore, and octacore (Sandy Bridge-EP Xeon only) options. Maximum RAM on single socket LGA-2011-based motherboards is 128 GB, making the platform ideal for tasks that need extra headroom. For maximum ease of use with guides and methods, we put together some general hardware recommendations. Ivy Bridge CustoMac Budget Build A powerful desktop build with budget-minded parts and no graphics card.
