Yes, this is the big question that will weigh on many of our minds! I have to admit, however, that Hackintosh and the DIY spirit it embodies provides a wonderful sense of satisfaction and pride. It’s not quite the same when we push the buy button on a website and a ready-to-use thingy arrives at our door! :) On the other hand, ready-to-use definite has its place. The next few months (12-24) are certainly going to be interesting in our Hackintosh world.
Aren't those lattes you sip ready-to-use?

And I agree, as Intel comes back and competes with both AMD and Apple, the next 2-3 years will super interesting.

Do you have Windows on this system? If so, it may be necessary to perform a cold start after any Windows session.
You are right...
I always do otherwise very often Wifi does not show up.
After a window session, I usually do cold start, then OC reset NVRAM and then finally boot again on EFI.
This time I am unsuccessful... :(

What grinder?
The new Lucca Atom 75 is on the short list.

P.S. The Bezzera hasn’t arrived yet because it hasn’t been ordered yet. :) I enjoy the experience of visiting local coffee shops — especially small chains and independent cafés — so I haven’t taken the plunge. There’s a certain satisfaction of revisiting a local shop where you remain silent throughout the ordering process because the barista has this amazing “FaceID” feature. You show your face, your order gets placed. No talking, no fussing. :)

Mine arrives mid dec :(
All good things are worth waiting for! I’m just a tad bit nervous about any as yet unknown skeletons in the closet that Apple hasn’t disclosed. Fortunately the review embargo lifts tomorrow morning.

All in all I’m pretty excited about it (I got a max 64gb) because my 2013 is going to die any day now, and I need a mobile setup for work… that plus my hack in the home office is a really great combo, similar performance from both systems!

Well, I too, like many others have a new 14" M1Max Macbook Pro ordered and it is scheduled to be delivered in very early November.

I like the hacks I've built but they have been pretty high maintenance, and while part of me enjoys the challenge of making these work, another part of me feels that it distracts me from really focusing on my work.

However missed blessing that sounds, the $$$ for "real" macs keeps going up, and that too is a decidedly mixed blessing.

So, for me, I will be especially curious about two issues; the first is just how good is my new laptop, and next year when the "possible" new Mac Pro with Apple Silicon comes out, just how much $$$ will Apple charge us for the new Apple Silicon Mac Pro. If it is affordable, or relatively so, that might just say to me that "ready-to-use" trumps the potential savings that might come from a hackintosh.

And, this is strictly my opinion, but after all, time spent doing and re-doing EFIs is also a cost, is it not? I think my time is worth something after all.

EDIT: @CaseySJ: FYI: I have re-installed my Fenvi HB1200 in my Z490, and it's perfect (so far). It responds natively (best I can tell), and best of all, it only need two antennas, which I also like very very much. I just needed the BT for a short project, and BT works great in this hack. I will wait for the Intel BT drivers to mature for now.

To Each His Own.

Thanks, @CaseySJ!
