Sorry for the newbie post, What's my best options, or maybe I should say least worst option, if I were to buy a laptop for a hackintosh project.

Failing that are there any good off the shelf pc eg dell etc that would work well?

Thanks

Thanks for the link. Sorry but I couldn't really find the information I was looking for. are their any laptops on the market that are known to have a simpler install process and strong compatibility? For example I know the years ago the hp probook was a popular choice, I'm just wondering if the is a upto date equivalent. Thanks

As per FAQ, look for laptops that have well written guides.

Heads up about what?
You never know whether you're going to run into a problem until you come upon it
(predicting the future is impossible).

You should read the FAQ.
Can any one give feedbck on the best one out of this list?

http://protechlists.com/hackintosh-laptops/#p1

I do not see a top list on this site, but that would be a welcomed edition.

I was hoping for a working video card, all working usb, usb C, network and wifi on the minimum for completely working. I would also like a video card with 2gb plus v ram and higher resolution than 1080p.

Read the guides in the various laptop guides forums.
Look for well written guides that clearly state what is working, as well as what is not working.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"
