Mac OS X We all know about PsyStar, the company that sells an unofficial Macintosh clone running Mac OS X Leopard. While the device runs Leopard fine, it has its shortcomings in that operating system updates have to go through PsyStar testing first, becuase they might break your installation. While this problem isn't addressed with this product, EFiX aims to simplify installing Mac OS X Leopard on your non-Apple machine.

Actually your 680i would run fine I've done it. But there is still the fact that you are running a hacked OS on non supported hardware, even if hacked drivers get it to work and run stable for awhile it doesn't take much to bring the system down.

It's not hard to get most newer machines to run with OS X with most hardware working, even most of the newer video cards work. But if you have ever worked on a Apple Intel machine compared to a "hackintosh" machine you'll appreciate the packaging and integration the Apple product brings.

Packaging and integration?
Welcome to the forum, first year marketing student.
Obviously you have no clue what you're talking about and you're just quoting catch words you've read or heard elsewhere.
How is a computer that looks like a desk lamp, is not upgradeable, mediocre performance, and ridiculously overpriced better than a quality pc box that works just as well but has much higher specs, is totally upgradeable (ie, can put 5 hard drives and all the ram I want) and cost half what the lamp costs?
And yes, you can get them in glossy white too if that's your thing.

You must be speaking of a high end PC system, yes I've built many. Were you prematurely dismissing my comment of OS X running on a 680i? Or the fact that doing so isn't recommended. And my comments do not apply outside of running OS X on a Vanilla flavour PC.

Since this article is about that, not about the quality of PC hardware vs Mac hardware.

Hi nice to meet you I'm guessing your the resident troll around here?
