    Default Which 17" Laptop shall I buy ? (can't afford MBP right now)

    I am really tired of my Toshi iHack, which cannot be transformed into a full hackint0sh because of a incompatible BIOS, which keeps LAN, WLAN and Sound from working in Mac OS X.x.

    Here's the internals which I need to have working (=without having to add external hardware):

    - USB
    - LAN
    - Sound
    - Grafics QE/CI @ 1440 x 900
    - Firewire

    and if possible internal WLAN (I am fine with card swapping, if after card exchange WLAN is working. I have an ORIGINAL Apple WLAN Mini-PCIe-card in my Laptop right now, which does not work because of the BIOS issue .. )

    Sleep is not that important, neither is unimportant periphery like Modem etc. But the moving components (both fans & HD) should really be silent!

    So, which new Intel based 17" can you advice me to buy ?

    I have a month old HP DV9540US I don't like because of vista. Would this work for your hack? I Paid $1200 for it but would sell it for $900 to anyone interested. 17", 2-120 hd, 2gb ram, 256 nvidia, altec lansing sound, fingerprint scanner. Its a nice computer I just decided I want amacbook pro instead.

    hi silestone,

    Do you have Leo installed, and do all of the components work in Leo? Which don't?

    I do not have Leopard installed, I thought someone might know if this might be a acceptable platform for a hack and if it was it would give you nice new laptop to work with. I'm just not yet comfortable doing this myself because of lack of experience.This is a really nice laptop, I just don't care for Vista on it. If your interested let me know
