The other day I decided to purchase a refurbished 13″ MacBook Pro to complete my little circle of synchronisation and to give me the power to do more on the go. Long story short I’m loving this machine. This article aims to help you understand why. For about a year I’ve been rocking a Compaq Presario CQ57 laptop which worked well for what I was using it for (browsing and the occasional image manipulation and website development session) but anything more than that and the laptop’s processor was hopelessly, hilariously defeated.
Has Mac OS X Lion put an end to the Hackintosh? Well that is certainly an interesting question and in short…no! The Hackintosh still lives on even with the advances Apple has made with Lion’s installation process. As you may be aware of, the Mac OS X Lion installation process is very different to the previous methods of installation. The traditional method was to insert a retail disk with the operating system on into the machine and follow the installation procedures. That has now changed for the most part. Lion is now purchased on the Mac App Store on an existing version of Mac OS X, and it is then executed as an application.
