Will this laptop make a good Hackintosh?
My friend needs a new Mac, but doesn't have $3000. He needs the high-end video cards and hard drives because he does alot of video editing, so I found him an Acer Aspire 5740 laptop on Newegg for $799 that we could upgrade the hardware on: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834115732.
It has great specs, and for an extra few hundred, we could give it even better hardware than the MacBook Pro.
My question is, is it (or should it be) compatible as a Hackintosh? The Acer Aspire 5720 is on the "compatible" list in the OSX86 Wiki, but I don't know how different they are (compatibility-wise).
Swibs: I'm not sure why it says that for you. I'm looking at it right now, from my link, and it's fine. Anyways, yes there are Mac drivers available for the video card it uses. I hadn't heard of any graphics problems, though I'm quite new to it, so I probably wouldn't know. Thank you for the help =)
