    Default newb wondering to do hackintosh or mac vm?

    hi all,

    I'm very new to hackintosh. I've been reading about it and I'm HIGHLY considering building a hackintosh next summer once ivy bridge hardware is usable.

    I'm really wondering if I should just build the very best PC I can build with an intel processor (within my budget), then just load a ios lion VM into that windows OS...

    Please help me out here. Even if I went with a hackintosh, I do want a iOS/Windows7 dual boot setup.

    Which method of doing what I want would be easiest and with least headaches? I heard adding a Windows VM to a MAC with fusion is probably the easiest way to go, but I'd rather not spend almost 2x as much for an apple's hardware.

    thanks in advance!

    Yes you can run OSX in a VM. The sad thing about it is that running a big OS like Lion inside a VM is not performng that great. Dual Boot is possible and better useable. Once you are getting more and more into OSX, you will notice how adictive it can be.

    To build a good hackint0sh, get the best compatible hardware and start building. It's not that hard, just the learning phase at the start might be a bit conusing. Once you done it and got it all working you should be fine of using it

    What is the main reason you want to keep Windows? Thats most likely giving you a good hint what the best setup is. If you are a gamer, a Windwos VM is not great and you are better of doing dual booting, if you just need it for some random stuff, a VM is cool.
