Given access and time, any computer can be hacked. That truism should be extended to read, “Given access and time, any Windows PC can be Hackintoshed.” That said, an enterprising soul has already created an OS X Mavericks Hackintosh.
Sava Djurdjevic, who’s a member of the Hackintosh Serbia collective, built an OS X Mavericks Hackintosh or, at the very least, he’s published a video that convincingly makes the case that he’s done it. Moreover, the basic components, less case and power supply, would cost about $195:
— Motherboard: Biostar P31-A7 ($60)
— Graphics: GeForce GT520 1GB ($59)
— RAM: 2x2GB DDR3 ($40)
— Processor: Intel Dual Core E5200 2×2.50GHz ($36)
For what it’s worth, my last Hackintosh was a Dell Mini 10V, back in 2010, which was unceremoniously replaced by an original iPad — I very much like brushed Aluminum and automatic software updates.
Sava says he used the MyHack utility to build his Hackintosh.
No, it’s not Haswell-powered 12-core beast able to go head-to-head with Apple’s best, but it’s fairly impressive that Sava’s built an OS X Mavericks Hackintosh for essentially chump change…
What’s your take?
