Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

You're totally right of course, and I'm not saying this machine is somehow a good Mac Mini alternative. This is just an experiment to show how easy it is to make your own Mac. I chose to build an Atom machine because 1) dual-core Atom 330 is rare and teh awesome, 2) it's cheap.

Also note that the Mac Mini probably draws a buttload more power.
