  • I was having real life problems when my uncle who works with the U.S Secret Service recommended hacker Alvin to me because private investigators are expensive. I contacted Alvin because my business partner was shaking me, stealing money from the business and also my spouse was always up at odd hours clearly that is a sign that my spouse is cheating, so the hacker remotely hacked into their devices and granted me total access to their devices without their knowledge. I was overwhelmed that i could see their hidden finances that were off records, read their old and new texts messages, i could see their files, Facebook, Instagram, messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, emails passwords, tap their phone calls etc.. He was fast and took the hassle out of it for me. Now it's not just suspicion I have facts and evidences against them .. IT FELT LIKE HAVING THEIR PHONE IN MY HAND ... His email is alvinlandry007 @ gmail com and WhatsApp +1(707) 267-7873. I strongly recommend him to everyone reading this post. He is the best man for the job. Thank me later........

  • so, for the money you saved, you could easily put some more powerful GPUs in there to even the odds (for example, 2 RTX 2080Tis instead of the 2 Radeon VIIs) and still save thousands of dollars. awesome.

    NjolfNjolf5 months ago
    • @Brendan Turner sure, but you could always install some distribution of linux (for example ubuntu) instead of windows and, for the most part, get best of both worlds (that is, again, if you're not doing graphic design or something like that, due to less available software, like the lack of adobe's products). i mean, from my experience with ubuntu it's far less resource hungry than windows, meaning you would get longer battery life and better acoustics than with a windows machine. as for the keyboard, well, it's personal preference. i don't really care what it's like, as long as it works (this generally extends to aesthetics of other things and the machines themselves, although i can appreciate a nice RGB build when i see one, but i digress). also, windows machines tend to not last as long partly due to software rot, which is less noticeable on linux and macOS. and i haven't had any bad experiences with ubuntu updates either, they tend to be quick and only sometimes require a restart, though they let you do whatever you want to do and update whenever you see fit. also, i remember that there was some issue about macbooks throttling under load due to poor cooling performance caused by their design being more oriented around sleek looks than functionality, but i haven't really followed the news on that to see how all that turned out. and honestly, i just like having choice when it comes to what i want to buy. for example, if you have no need for a dedicated GPU, you can buy a laptop with a good CPU and integrated graphics for a few hundred bucks, which is less than the entry level macbooks. if you want a dedicated GPU, you can get some for around the same price as an entry level macbook - which doesn't come with a dedicated GPU. and besides, different brands offer different sets of features and slightly different combinations of hardware, meaning you're more likely to find something that better suits your need than a macbook. but this is mostly personal preference, i guess.

      NjolfNjolf5 months ago
    • Njolf well the benefits for Mac in terms of professional use would be apps, the ease to develop (which is what I use my Mac for), it doesn’t force constant ducking updates, etc. Also I’d disagree with other laptops being better. MacBooks are built like tanks, I like the butterfly keyboard personally, they’re quieter, battery life lasts forever and macs in general last waaaayyyyy longer than windows laptops and they don’t throttle worse than windows laptops. Plus you can always also run windows on macs but can’t run Mac OS on windows laptops

      Brendan TurnerBrendan Turner5 months ago
    • @Brendan Turner yeah, i don't get the point of hackintoshes either, as linux is just better for productivity (mostly, from what i've seen doing some design work is not as easy on linux due to a lack of software but you can just use windows for that) and windows is better for gaming. mac might offer some slight performance benefits in some cases, but it's mostly insignificant given the notably higher price tag which lets you buy faster hardware to compensate (which is the point i made originally - okay, they may not be flat out faster, but you get more or less the same performance for less money), and in laptops you get better cooling than apple's products. and honestly, not giving apple any money is value in it's own right (in my opinion). on a side note, i really don't understand some of the selling points for the mac pro. for example, 1.5 TB of RAM? only application i could think of for such an amount would be some serious server stuff, but in that case, you wouldn't rely on a mac to perform as a server, especially because you can get some better hardware that they don't offer in their lineup (something like AMD's epyc lineup). anyway, i think i got a little carried away.

      NjolfNjolf5 months ago
    • Njolf in my opinion hackintoshies aren’t worth the extra effort; especially for professional use. If you need Mac OS, you’re better buying the Mac Pro, or one of their laptops or all in ones. Or using simply using Linux. But bare in mind the Mac Pro isn’t really for average consumers anyway, it’s for editing houses or a bunch of other things I can’t think off. Personally I’d rather buy their laptops, because they’re better in every way from windows alternatives except for price and then just use my desktop for gaming

      Brendan TurnerBrendan Turner5 months ago
    • @Brendan Turner Oh, that sucks. I guess that's one of the problems when companies build proprietary software that's only ever meant to run on certain types of hardware. Oversight on my behalf, in any case. well, i guess the best option then would be to not use mac for the OS, but at that point it's not a hackintosh, just a good competitor to the mac pro (with a far lower price tag). And you'd be better of as far as raid options go and all that. but yeah, moot point then, i suppose.

  • I hate how this turned out. (NO HARM!) first of all, I have my own Hackintosh, that looks EXACTLY like a mac! Not with holes in the side.. Second of all, I really don't think you need a ton of ram. I can open 20+ tabs fine on my Hackintosh. (15 gigs of ram, upgrading soon) Third, it can be a little bit over more powerful then Apple's Mac Pro. I have over 1.5 Terabytes, and it's also fast. Fourth, watercooling can be cool; BUT apple didn't do that! So nobody cares. Fifth, it still has to have the apple spirit. Obviously this looks disgusting, and you can do better EVERYWHERE. Sixth, the IO Shield and other related things can look way better. Considering I PERFECTLY sanded the IO slots for my Hackintosh, looking at a USkeysr with 10.4M+ more subscribers then me, it's embarrassing. Don't take this as hate; Linus is the funniest guy ever, and I don't want anyone hating this comment. I just think you can do a bit better and it doesn't always have to be fast; you can slowly upgrade it :). Specs I know of: 15 Gigs of RAM Ryzen 3 (yes, it's a old APU, but it gets the job done w/ fortnite and cs;go.) 1.5+ terabytes of storage. I'm just saying Linus (he won't see this lol); you don't always have to go on the overpowered side. If it's a fun project that you wont use much, use this advice people. If it's a daily gaming computer, shove that 512 gigs of ram, RTX 2080 TI, and a core zeon in there! BUT; Before you do that, take your time. Don't buy it all at once, slowly go up and you can top the speeds on benchmarking programs without hacking. :) Have a good day, no harm or dislikes to anyone.
