After having a Dell Vostro laptop with OS X on it for a few months, I will never ever use a "Hackintosh" again. It seems like everytime I did anything, something would break after a simple number of reboots. If I'm somehow forced to upgrade or get something else besides my MBP or a new Mac laptop, I'll go the Windows/Linux route.
Mac laptops will be my choice from here on out if I can help it.
My MBP is a dream laptop and has been perfect since day one. I can run any OS perfectly on it that I want and do anything, minus heavy gaming of course but you knew that.
