    I love the irony of Windows users calling Mac users sheep when there are far more of them than Mac users, thus they are the sheep following the herd rather than Mac users.

    You know that you guys are All right! :yes: Just the point of view that matters:

    - If money are not a problem, you don't have time, knowledge or nerves for tweaks and you just like a machine that does its job out of the box (up to about 5 years) then Mac is the way.
    - If money are a problem, but you still want the Mac and you are ready to manage all the hassle that comes with Hackintosh building, then do it. But to avoid involving a lot of time and nerves, buy components that you know for sure they work for it.
    - If you want all your hardware and software to work for many years, without the fear of the next Mountain update, you have common sense for using the internet and you are ready to tweak your machine and solve random issues that may occur from time to time, then Windows is the way.
    The peace and wisdom be with you! Now go make some music! :dj:

    Because some people want to build a desktop which runs OSX without the cost of buying legit Apple hardware. I'm not one of them I've always bought Apple kit since I moved from Windows in 2010 but I understand that some people prefer to do it themselves for a lot less cost. You can also buy them pre-configured from Ebay with OSX already installed if you don't wanna self-build too.

    Guys, it's not hard to build your own hackintosh.
    The forum at tonymacx86 is literally full of builds. There are comprehensive guides there too. For the people who have never done it before, all you need to do is stick with someone else's build that you know it works. You can always put your own ssds, hdds, psus, audio interfaces in an existing build that you see and like. People in the forum are very helpful and will reply to any questions. The Hackintosh community is getting stronger and stronger as time goes by. I hear Catalina's been officially "hijacked" and now there's a guide to install it on your homemade Intel pc. Who knows, it might even work with AMD. Speaking of AMD, the trickiest part with AMD motherboards is getting Thunderbolt to work with macOS, as of now i'm not aware of anyone who successfully got it to work. It is imperative for the community to solve this (because of all the new Threadrippers!), but i guess once USB4 is out, compatibility will be easier. Thunderbolt 4 was also announced but [email protected], it's the same 40gbit connection, same cable etc. As of now, i dunno why the numeric change on the name.
    Cheers mates.

    If you like Logic Pro, Digital Performer or Pro Tools then mac (budget unfriendly)
    Other DAWs then custom PC/Win rocks ( budget friendly)

    Fair enough.

    They're a tax write-off for me.

    Any other great advantages to a Hack over legit?

    Well, if that were true, it would be contextual to the fact that Apple brings out OSs every 5 minutes haha. Unlike MS.
    But the fact is, a lot of Mac users stay behind on OSs, and more so if their studio is all working fine.
    I do still meet a lot of music creators who stayed on 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, from 2010 I think.
    Because it was the last 32/64bit OS.
    But yes, sheep in both camps, definitely.
    Heck. Old boys purely on analogue probably think any computer user is a sheep!

    The notion that mac is just a pc with mac OS is kind of wrong though. I've stripped the old G5's down and they are filled with so much hardware everything fits snug. My PC looks bare though.

    I plan on going hackintosh though, just want to buy all the correct parts and do it right.
