For most people, Hackintoshes are meant to be a cheaper alternative to buying a real Mac. However, Mac OS X doesn't work with just any hardware, so building your own Hackintosh on the cheap usually need some extra research. In the interest of saving you time (and money), I've compiled a list of the 4 best discount Hackintosh builds, all of which can run Mac OS X Lion flawlessly. Best of all, every one of these builds costs less than $500 to assemble.
You've undoubtedly seen warnings like the one shown above on your Hackintosh before; every time you download anything from the internet, Mac OS X drops you this warning before you can open the file. Ostensibly, this is for your own security. However, if you don't need Mac OS X warning you about everything that you download, it's actually very to disable this "feature". This tip isn't Hackintosh-specific, so it'll work with real Macs too.
