Building My $1,200 Hackintosh(medium.com)

    So in exchange for $1k (the difference between what you paid and a top of the line 5k iMac) you are not only getting a long list of major issues / missing features (sound not working reminds me of the days of windows XP when you had to find a working driver for your sound card before you had sound), you are also not getting any support, no updates, no 5k display, a considerably less reliable system in a less practical form factor. Not to mention the ton of work it takes to build and maintain that thing.

    Good choice.

      Could you be more condescending? I wrote an article about a cool thing I did, there's no reason to be a jerk. Oh wait, it's Designer News, everyone's a jerk.

        I am not being condescending, I am questioning the usefulness of a hackintosh. If you care to counter my arguments, you are more than welcome to.
