Well hackintoshers, I have searched everywhere on the net seems that lady(google) didn't find anything to this question.
Share your experience with a hackbook for pro work mostly in video and audio production, or graphics.
How has the hackbook been to you?
What are the main problems you encounter with your hack on the road?
What's your life experience and would you continue using the hackbook for long if you had the cash to buy a real MacBook?
Let's keep it clean and professional, we are always getting guides but after people finish they disappear in the air.
In my country a real MacBook costs the price of 2 acres of land it I can get a any decent HP or Lenovo laptop for quarter the price with at least 4th gen i7 and 16 gigs of ram, but I want to learn from your experiences before I spend my hard saved money for 2.5 yrs to buy a laptop for OS X at least for 2 to 3 yrs to come. Please share your experience with the model of the hack you have. Thank you all and thanks. Rehab and all other coders who make this forums going on.

I've almost-good-enough hacked a pretty almost-good-enough laptop and I'm eager to see what osx could do into this next laptop that i'm going to get my hands into.
Sold said laptop because I already got an almost top specd 2012 mba.
But could sell it if this next one is nice.
I'm going to have to frankenstein it partition-wise, with linux and osx, maybe all 3, or windows and osx.
so I'm thinking fixing a hdd to the exterior with velcro, holding osx on the built in ssd on a small partition, enough for some coding (64gb? xcode alone is 10), and external velcro'd one for data.
Funds from mba selling will go towards my better future project.

Support here was just essential. Thanks a lot rehab and every one writing guides and engaging!

How is performance of the hacks you have used and would you recommend for serious work?
