    Apple’s new Mac Pro will max out at 28 CPU cores, but that’s projected to cost as much as a midrange sports car. Nothing a bare metal Hackintosh can’t fix…

    I think the other dude needs a YouTube channel. He has good presence with neutral energy. Go off on your own player!

      I fully support Hackintosh. Apple needs to not be unreasonably tight with their hardware.

                Anthony’s hanging on to his hair like Jack hung on to that door Rose was on. I’ll never let go jack. Jacks gone. And so is your hair. Not tryna be a duck or a dick. And I know that analogy made no sense.

If you are extremely tech savvy you may get it working. If you can’t get it going good luck getting help from the forum community. I verified my hardware was comparable and still could not get it going. No help from the community.
