Hackintosh is a “hacked” version of macintosh (which is a Operating System designed to work on Apple Inc. System’s like Macbook Pro , Macbook Air, iMac and mac Pro’s.) it is a term used to describe non-Apple machines featuring x86-64 processors that run macOS. Hackintosh machines allow for deeper customization than traditional Mac machines, and oftentimes provide more power per dollar spent. Hackintosh machines can be difficult to install, maintain, or upgrade, however.
That means you’ll need to be comfortable with the idea of building your own machine and providing your own technical support when you run into problems. While this can be a little bit of a scary prospect if you’re new to building a hackintosh, it’ll also save you a lot of money while still providing you with an incredibly powerful, fully customizable machine. We’ll also point you to several resources we’ve put together to help you learn everything you need to know about building a computer so you can feel confident on your first time through the entire computer building process. This is not a project for beginners, but it is something that anyone can learn to do.
icking out hardware and building a computer is often the most daunting part of this process. Thankfully, we’re here to do a lot of the work for you! While you can certainly do your own research and pick out compatible parts, we’ve created a large selection of pre-configured systems along with a list of compatible parts for you to build your own.
Our list of builds includes the following types of machines:
- CustoMac Mini: a barebones Mac Mini clone in a shoebox-sized case.
- CustoMac Mini Deluxe: A larger, but still below-average sized computer with some significant power behind it.
- CustoMac mATX: A mid-sized build with a quad-core CPU, maxed out RAM, and lots of expandability.
- CustoMac Budget ATX: A powerful desktop build with budget-minded parts and no graphics card.
- CustoMac Pro: A full-sized build with a quad-core CPU, maxed out RAM, and lots of expandability.
Alternatively, you can check out our list of individual components and build your own custom system. The components listed in our database aren’t the only ones that work, but based on our research they’re the easiest and best supported options. Use our Buyer’s Guide as a shopping list or as a jumping off point for further customization.
Once you have your hardware you’re going to need to assemble it into a working computer. We have an entire night school course on computer building, but this specific lesson will walk you through how to build your first computer. Follow it diligently, read your motherboard and case manuals closely, and you should have a functional machine in no time.
