Just thought it would be interesting to see if anyone here owns a real Mac in addition to their Hackintosh. I have a PowerBook G4 12" 1.5. Long in the tooth at this point, and only running Leopard, but it still runs like a champ. Better than any netbook in my opinion- it has a real graphics card!! But the Geekbench score is an abysmal 727!!! :lol:

Edit 2011: Got a 13" Sandy Bridge MacBook Air! :D It's the best laptop I've ever owned.

Edit 2013: Replaced the air with a 15" Ivy Bridge MacBook Pro. Love the retina screen.

lol... you are the funny one bro.

In my case, I owned multiple Mac products before (3 lastest generations of Macbook pro and 1 iMac). However, PC seems to be cheaper and I think more about the money so I switch to PC. And now, I have a dual boot Hackintosh. Pretty please so far.

i own a macbook (my first computer i got for myself) and this hackintosh is my second. i needed something fast and i wanted it to be customizable with out spending over $2000 and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. my family has also owned macs. we went through 4 different desktop models while i was with my parents. macintosh classic -> power macintosh 4400 -> imac g3 -> emac. i still have the cases it would be funny to try and build a new computer inside them.

I have an early intel mac mini - that came with the core duo. I upgraded the CPU to a core2duo and upped the RAM. My wife has a MB - C2D with the 9400M graphics.

Why am I not surprised with the 90% own real Macs stat. For that reason, Apple should never get upset at what we do.

Here's my history:

1) First gen Mac Mini
2) First gen white macbook
3) brief stint with a G4 Mac
4) iPhone 3g
5) iPhone 3gs
6) 2008 Macbook Pro
7) my favorite one of all... i7 860 Hack Pro @ 4.0Ghz, w/ 12,500+ Geekbench score!
