    This the first example I know of.

    Long and short of it:
    - as would be expected, Kaby Lake CPU supported by using FakeCPUID (with Skylake ID)
    - somewhat surprising (lucky guess on my part), Kaby Lake HD620 supported by using FakeID/IntelGFX and FakePCIID kexts.

    Details in the battery patching thread (of all places)...

    Post from t_anjan proposing FakeCPUID: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...g-battery-status.116102/page-342#post-1389087

    My reply with suggestion for FakeID/FakePCIID kexts for graphics spoof: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...g-battery-status.116102/page-342#post-1389166

    This makes me VERY interested in the Razer Blade Stealth!

    Assuming it has replaceable WiFi, might be worth a try... (it seems a bit expensive though for what you're getting!)

    Keep in mind the latest laptops have I2C trackpads, which are not well supported (drivers are an early WIP and need a lot of work).

    What is the support for killer wireless? I'm pretty sure it is Broadcom chips.

    Not sure as I don't have access to one. These are the specs though:

    Killer Wireless-AC 1535, Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth 4.1.

    Definitely not Broadcom.

    Ok thank. Looks replaceable though and it is cheaper than buying a MacBook Pro with similar build quality, better specs and more ports.

    Thanks for the info. I've never tried hackintosh'ing with a laptop.

    Things to watch out for:
    - WiFi whitelist in BIOS
    - no facility to change DVMT-prealloc (the Kaby Lake Lenovo mentioned in post #1 had it set as required by default)

    There are some ASUS/HP with similar specs, less money...

    Did you already get your hands on that Razer Blade? Looks nice from the pictures (although I'd prefer a slimmer bezel), would be interesting if the build quality is comparable to a MacBook.

    Especially the touchpad is often a deal breaker to me, didn't find a PC notebook yet that can match Apples touchpad "magic" (open for other suggestions as well...).
