So, you want a Mac computer, but you don't want to pay the overly inflated price for the brand. You're not alone. Let's face it, even Mac users -- who love their computers more than life itself -- don't like their prices.
So, what's a computer nerd to do? Well, if you're like a growing number of eggheads in the world, you put together what is commonly referred to as... a Hackintosh.
A quick search of the web will produce a number of tutorials, videos and guides to creating a Hackintosh computer from scratch. One such enthusiast claimed to have bought everything he needed to make the computer for under 200 euros. I think this works out to be about $350.
This is a step by step guide to building your own.
