I bought another laptop at Best Buy after giving my garnet red Gateway to the (idiot) Geek Squad. Want to return a computer to Best Buy? Just say the screen flickers. They’re not going to spend an hour waiting for the momentious occacioun that your laptop actually has an issue. They’re too busy collecting huge fees to run virus scans. I ended up going with a reduced price Dell Inspiron 1525. While the specs are very similar to my Gateway, the CPU is a Pentium Dual Core (Not to be confused with Pentium D) which runs on a slower FSB than my previous Core2 Duo, allowing it to be overclocked nicely.
I’m going to be posting a tutorial on how I got my Inspiron turned into a HackBook Pro, and I’ll also be sharing drivers, files, etc. so you can buy this inexpensive $499.99 laptop at your local electronics store and in about an hour transform it into a portable beast running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4! Stay tuned.
