I want to get peoples opinions of the possibility of making one of these a Hackintosh, I think this is the first laptop that finally looks better than any of mac laptops.. and the fact that it doesn't have a retina display, but one with a decent resolution is a plus (Retina not that wonderful IMO) IT would be so sick if I carried one of these around and then people looked at it and it was running mac os and the fact that it has HDMI and its display.. I think its a winner.

Ill open a poll and see what people think.. Dont know the price yet probably comparable to a retina 13' so not cheap but if full compatibility is posible well it would be SICK.

This would be insanely awesome, although I'd be more interested in the RBP. I wonder what hurdles you'd have to jump through to get the LCD trackpad working. I've got one preordered just for use as a Windows gaming machine, but to be able to dual boot OS X on it would be icing on the cake.

Will you try it when you get your Razor Blade ? To dual boot OS X.

I'm really interested in this laptop, but first I need to know if it is possible to also smoothly run OS X on it.

It might work, but you won't have things like wifi and bluetooth, and you will probably not be able to get the full potential of the hardware because of driver issues. I wouldn't count on it, but you might get lucky. As for the RBP, you will definitely not be able to get the trackpad working in OSX. No doubt about that.
