If what you want is a desktop computer, build a desktop computer.Good question! (o:
it's frustrating to have a "pro" laptop and not be able to upgrade it's components easily; it seems (to a novice like me) that a hybrid hackintosh using mostly original mac components would be more stable than a completely pieced-together hackintosh...so long as the new components are from standard hackintosh builds (known to be supported by MacOS).
Externalizing some of the components would mean that I wouldn't have the size restraints of my laptop or the cooling issues.
I don't really use my laptop as a laptop; I take it to work with me at a hospital where it sits on a desk for 12 hours, so having an external box with the processor/videocard is no more of a problem than having an external harddrive and a bunch of dongles (I'm lookin' at you, 2016 mbp).
The big questions would be, based on your collective experiences, 1) would a hybrid hack really be any more stable than a pc-turned-hack, and 2) is it physically possible to redirect this mutant beast to use an external processor/motherboard/videocard...
