Hi Hackintosh community :) I don't have much experience as I've only 'toshed one lenovo once, But I'm Always interested in the possibilities. Does anyone think the new Framework laptop could be an ideal platform for a hackintosh? https://frame.work/
- seems like it has the right components, also it has seemingly flexible wifi compatibility so is this the perfect repairable replacement for a mac?
Interested to read everyone's thoughts :)

Assuming your post is not just advertising spam ...

No, not really suitable hardware. No support for 11th gen Intel CPUs, especially the iGPUs.

It would make a good Windows 11 laptop. Quite easy to "skin" it to make it look like macOS Big Sur or Monterey but even then, it's still Windows with all it's many downsides.

not spam, just a novice lol. And oh I didn't know that about 11th gen. that's a shame it would be amazing to have a really future proof laptop that could be 'toshed.

Yeah, no doubt. I already have a t420 tho which I think I could 'tosh (confusingly not "the one lenovo I 'toshed once") so I'll just keep that as long as possible bc the whole point of something like the framework is to preserve the life of laptops. Plus I do really like my t420

No problem. It was just the username you had chosen seemed to point that way. :)
