Hey @missile0407 , I have several questions to you. At first, how long does the battery life last? On the article description it says up to 6 hours, isnt that probably an optimized number? Because I am searching a hackintosh with decent battery life, since I will use it when Im out, at home I have my normal PC. Secondly, do you think, this Hackintosh would also work on DELL Inspiron 15 7570? Because you can hardly get the 7560 on normal shopping pages.

Cheers

1. It's hard to say how long can use for battery life first. Depends on how you use it.
Also, it can't be a promise because it's "Hacintosh". That means battery life can't be promise just like a same in Windows, or even native Macintosh.

2. Perhaps it can work, but 7570 is totally different CPU and Graphic. So it still need a lot of settings need to adjust.
But I don't have 7570. So I suggest you give a shot on it. Trying to adjust by yourself.

Yeah, this may be true. But since you are using this specific device with OS X installed, you can probably tell me how long the battery lasts on this device on just a normal usage.

I think it is very difficult to say to "just give it a shot". I mean if I would already obtain a laptop, I could probably try it out. But I am defenitely not spending a lot of money on a laptop for using it with hackintosh, just to find out its not working.

For me, it can stand about 2 hours and little longer when I'm using with battery only.

And yes I understand what you mean. I believe 7570 and 7580 are the similar hardware architecture except CPU and GPU as 7560. So it may as easy as possible to install. But still need to investigate because all I thought is just guess work.

yeah, I think Ill search for one that is well guided. Still need to research the type of laptop that fits the best to me. I will be mainly using it for developing games and coding in general.
2 hours seems very bad for a laptop. Especially when the initial battery time is 6 hours.

Honestly, the battery time is little close when I'm using 7560 in Windows 10.
And I think the battery quality is not so well because I just replace a new one when I got this laptop a year.
The battery was totally inflated when tear it down.

Yeah - I am still researching, but one choice that I am very into right now is the Lenovo Yoga 730. According to guides, you need to swap the WiFi-card to make it work in hackintosh, but elsewise it should work pretty nice ( https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/a6jceh ). The battery life seems great and it is a convertible, the touch even still "works" in OS X, according to what i have read. Well i just think that 15,6" is maybe too big for portability, but this model (the 15") has a NVIDIA 10 Series GPU. The 13" version just has a crappy INTEL UHD GPU which I think is not quite suitable of what I am doing.

Update: 20190326 (Mac OS X 10.14.4 upgrade)
  • Update CLOVER version to r4862
  • Update Lilu to 1.3.5
  • Update Whatevergreen to 1.2.7
  • Update RealtekRTL8111 to 2.2.2
  • Add config.plist/Devices/Properties/PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)/enable-hdmi20=01000000 (data)
    This option can let HDMI to support external monitor which the resolution larger than FHD.
    Already tested on WQHD (2560x1440) monitor and it works fine.
And there's few things you may have to know:
  1. Since RehabMan didn't release a newer CLOVER, I changed to using r4862 community because I got stuck when try to boot into installer under r4701-RM.
  2. Make sure you already update kexts to latest both on system and CLOVER first before upgrade. Especially Lilu and Whatevergreen.
