    Default Cheap hackintosh design for office terminals

    I was thinking of creating a few terminal hackintosh computers.

    I am trying to do it on the cheap, all im really trying to do is email, web, and parallels desktop for one vital pc-only application. I know a mac mini can handle these tasks, as i have tested this setup on my own mini.

    I was hoping I could get some feedback on these parts, and if they would work with a kalyway 1.5.1 install with vanilla kernel.

    Heres a parts list. And thanks for the feedback!

    Also, Would this setup allow for software update to function? Meaning I can update automatically without problems?

    lol. If I am reading your post right, you are saying im advertising for newegg?
    Nah, I just wanted to provide links to the products I want to put into the computer. I could remove them if its not allowed? I figured it would be easier for people to answer if they had the whole spec page on the link.

    I just want to know if this will run leopard vanilla, be able to use software update, etc. I chose these parts not to advertise, just because they were cheap and im not looking for powerhouses.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Hey the prices are there too only to show that if it works, its around $320. Im trying to keep costs low, as i will need around five computers.
