I understand that completely, and I never intended for it to come out as all Macs have a color 'problem'. I was just putting another reason on the table for why I prefer my PC.


I think I will soon use Vista x64 full-time on my MacBook Pro

NO! Don't do it!

They are VERY overpriced. Apple's products are ALWAYS overpriced. You know why? Because they can. That's exactly why I won't buy a Mac, EVER. Unless I have too much useless money laying around of course.

Agreed, I was just lucky to pick up a mint-condition MacBook Pro 2.4ghz w/ 2gb ram for only $350

Someone who needed money ASAP was selling it. I got the laptop, charger, and a crappy case. And right now, it is burning my lap this thing gets so damn hot!

Best bet, spend the money from a Macbook or whatever you plan on buying instead, on building a beefed up PC. Make sure you order hardware that's specifically stated as being compliant with the Mac OSx86. Then buy 2 seperate hard drives. Myself would personally make the larger one run an instance of Mac OSx86, just considering you do any audio or video editing... which is something Mac is popular for. Then I'd personally run my primary boot as Windows, whichever you prefer most... although I hear good things of the Windows 7 Beta.

DEFINITELY take a chunk of that and purchase a license for Mac OS so you can run it legally.

This way you'll be able to run both, and not only that you'll have more power than any Mac you'd ever buy. Stability is important though, so make sure to read all the reviews you can with running, as it's more commonly known as, a Hackintosh. I've read fantastic things about it. Flexibility is pretty cool as well.

In case anyone has already covered this, sorry... didn't want to read 8 more pages of comments haha.

Here's the Wiki for OSx86: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page (here you'll find hardware compatibility lists)

Here's a DIY Hackintosh article: http://macapper.com/2008/01/19/diy-h...pro-for-cheap/

Here's another: http://lifehacker.com/software/hack-...800-321913.php

Here's an article for not having to hack it, to build the Hackintosh: http://lifehacker.com/348653/install...king-required/
