Main Work Computer/Hackintosh
My day to day computer is a desktop hackintosh that I built in early 2010. For the most part I find it to be rock solid and a great alternative to pricey Apple hardware.
List of components
- GA-P67-UD3-B3 BIOS Revision: F9
- Gigabyte ATI Radeon 5770
- Crucial C300 128gb SSD
- Corsair 650w Power Supply
- G-Skill Ripjaw 4GBx4
- NZXT H2 Case
Currently: 10.8.2 Mountain Lion
Started at 10.6.3 (Snow Leporad) originally. Did minor updates until about 6 months after Lion relase. Upgraded to Lion. Approximately six months later upgraded to Mountain Lion 10.8 in December 2012.
I also dual boot into Windows 7. Windows 7 is stored on a seperate harddrive and I boot into it using Chimera.
- Papers: a program for organizing scientific literature. This program was my reason for turning to OSX.
Laptop is currently running Linux Mint 14 KDE and dual booting Windows 7.
