    Hackintoshes are such a pain – You need the right hardware, and you need to invest a huge amount of time and effort EVERY TIME you change that hardware. But there’s another way…

          Wouldn't it be easier to use VMware workstation? There's
          Apple virtual disc that exist on the web that you can download and use inside VMWare. This demonstration was very entertaining, wasn't very helpful because y'all went like 500 mph

                            There is no obvious motivations to build a hackintosh, if Apple hardware gets more powerful and cheaper. The complexity for complying hardware, supported software, operating systems, hardware drivers, technical difficulties, software bugs and good cable structure has increased in a level over the last two past decades that is mindblowing and astounding. Thank God to have Linus Tech Tips.

                              "Any" is a bit disingenuous, not even an Apple fanboy but Hackintosh and emulation can be VERY finicky.

                                          Why not use Virtualbox under windows? wouldnt that be much more attainable for the average user? I have not tested it, but I have read that this is be possible...
