Sure do, didn't have to pay $3000 for a Mac Pro either.

By the way, it was $60, copy of SL and copy of Lion, but no need to split hairs.

You know, honestly the reason I messed around with these hackintosh installs is because of the challenge of running the software on PC hardware. I wanted to try OSX SL/Lion, and I enjoyed the challenge of getting it to run.

But in my daily work, I use Windows, and I'm not really interested in a Mac. So a $60 tinkering and science experiment was worth it to me.

There are many things I like about OSX (especially it's unix-like backend), and I may get a Macbook in the future. But Windows (and Linux) have all the programs/tools that I need/use, so I can't justify the cost. But it's still fun to play around with these hackintosh machines heh.

Updated my laptop to 10.7.3 today. Piece of cake when you have a proper DSDT.

The HD6970 update broke my Lion install. There are patches available, but I can't boot, so I'm in a catch 22.

Going to pick up an HD6450 (works OOB) so I can install the patches to get my 6970's working.

Not bad for $45: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeo.../dp/B004XLPJNK
