…You can Mac for cheap with a Hackintosh?

Hackintosh

Like the looks of Apple’s new OS, but still trying to stay loyal to Windows?

Then check out Lifehacker’s Hackintosh guide for information on how to build a high-end computer that’s confused about its identity using OSx86.

    The build consists of a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a total of 4GB of RAM (four sticks at 1GB each), an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe motherboard, a GeForce 7300GT (the same basic video card that comes installed in the default Mac Pro configuration), a 500GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and an Antec Sonata case.

So what’s all of this going to cost you?

$800, plus the cost of the OS.

Not bad for a system whose closest competitor is the $600 Mac Mini with half the specs.

…Apple doesn’t like to network with Windows?

Apple Windows BSOD

Apple has apparently decided not to be subtle about its feelings for Microsoft, as any time you connect a Windows computer to a Leopardized Mac through the network, you’ll be greeted with a subtle reminder of the BSOD.

Cute, Apple; very cute.

…Apples don’t get viruses?

Apple Store Virus

Here’s a cute little Easter Egg from the Apple guys that managed to retain their sense of humor: Go to the Store and type ‘Virus’ into the search box; You’ll be treated to a quick dig on Windows’ ability to get sick from time to time.

Yet another reason to love a Mac.

…Cars can have tattoos too?

Lamborghini Tattoo

Here’s a paint scheme that I’d like to see more of: The automotive tattoo.

Shown here on a Lamborghini Gallardo, the wrap even extends to the windows for full coverage.

Though I’m sure it’s not for everyone, it’s hard to deny the eye appeal.

…The Stevenote is over?

Leopard

And the huge news from Apple is…

Not much.

Some gaming news, a few Leopard updates, a rather lame iPhone update, new Safari Beta, and Sarafi on Windows.

This iPhone thing better be huge, or Apple fanboys are going to have to start deflating their expectations.

Anyone get a Bingo?
