Hi all,

I use a macbook. I can't help to recognise that for the same hardware specificiation, you can get it cheaper on other laptop. I have to say I love my mac. But I want to justify this higher in cost. So i have two questions:
  • Besides mac having its unique product design and software. What other reasons justify a higher price on mac product?
  • Is the hardware entirely the same ? why need to do Hackintosh to run mac os x on a normal PC? Am I missing something about mac hardware?
QUOTE Thanks

This has been gone over many times. Please search the forums... You can also go to Tom's Hardware Site and look at what he has to say about it.

Also.. we do not discuss illegal activities in these forums. (Hackintosh)

Regards.
