Want Mountain Lion on your Hackintosh?
Building a hackintosh—that is, installing Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware—used to require extremely restricted hardware choices and quite a bit of know-how.

It's a hell of a lot easier to create a Linux boot drive and install that, not to mention Linux runs on nearly all hardware out there.
 
Your list of parts for the sample build comes to $1,133, not the claimed "just over $400." May want to fix.
 
It's unfortunate that I'm going to have to uncircle Lifehacker because they apparently got hacked by Apple fanboys instead of giving me the useful postings I was hoping for.
 
I think if you want an Apple you might rather just Buy an Apple. Isn't part of the whole Apple experience that you don't have to touch any of the wirey, circuitry, scary parts inside?
 
No mention of AMD in there.

Oh, well, I'm off to install Kubuntu 12.10 Alpha 3 in my AMD laptop.
 
After all, isn't that why many people choose Apple products?  Not really having to know how it works inside?
 
Equal amount of PC buyers are the same; they don't care how it works inside as long as it works.  I'm lucky I guess.  Installing OS X on my PC is as easy as installing Linux. :P
