    Arrow Selling MBP mid 2011 ...coz it could be better?!

    Hey!

    First post here - read a bit already in this forum - I already like it very much here - great community!

    To start; why I am here - I am a not so proud owner of a new MacBook Pro mid 2011.
    I bought it for using Final Cut, Quartz Composer and some other Visual Applications.

    But the list of things that are just unacceptable is after 4 weeks of intense use / installing / tweaking so long - I just can't tolerate it anymore. If I started to list them all now, I'd sit here until tomorrow - so maybe next time if someone cares.

    So now that I thought I could switch to a lightning fast MBP (haha) from my old crappy ACER Core2Duo Laptop ... which happens to be just twice as fast as my MBP in about every discipline besides the good looking (just my feeling).

    So my decision is made - since there are anyway no Thunderbolt devices available and the MBP is 'a bit' expensive (I guess I could get 3 neat laptops for the price of this...).

    Ok... So I need a PC-Laptop that could fit my needs. They are: Using OS X with Final Cut Pro, VDMX (VJ Software)

    I mainly use After Effects and Photoshop which I would run on Windows 7 rather than on OSX since I had to find out myself that Adobe made a mess when porting them to OSX... After all I guess I am more a Windows user - my 3D-Applications are Windows-Only as well... So that will make me stay there as well.

    So, for this purpose a 17" display would be neat - this is the only thing I really like on the MBP the big Hi-Res and most important matte display. I'd do everything for a Hi-Res matte display on a PC-Notebook.

    Sorry for the long text but maybe there is a Notebook out that is known to be hackintosh-friendly and a good MBP-replacement?

    Thanks in advance for your opinion / help!

    Cheers!

    You're not going to get a better non-apple laptop for FCP at the moment. All the non apple laptops out there are based on the same chipset family as the macbook pro.

    Sounds like you have more issues with OS X and the price of the mac hardware than anything else.

    Well, more ram fixed it... but anyways I think you can get a lot better hackintosh for the buck - that is what I was trying to ask. So are there laptops with i7 that is known to be a good hackint0sh?

    listenpreis, your best bet is to take a look at the exact specifications for a mbp and see if you can match them in a non apple laptop and see if the price difference is justifiable. Remember the resale value of your mac won't be anything near the price you payed for it so you will loose a bit of money. Also remember hakint0sh may run well but it isn't the same as running a supported fully legal OS. If you are looking to use this professionally I suggest sticking with the mbp. Remember companies cannot support their software on unsupported machines (well not as easily anyways :p)
