There's a big debate about "legality" and Hackintosh. Sparknotes: it's not piracy or stealing, because you do buy actual software, but it does violate Apple's EULA.
Even though Psystar supposedly lost / settled their case with Apple, they are still selling a Core i7 Hackintosh:
Basically, it's a gray area. Personally, I would not hesitate to build a hackintosh if it suited my needs. If I were running a business, however, I would consider it more carefully and try to read through some of the notes from the Psystar case.
russian and german clones
I have try myself an hackingtosh and it's a bit complicated.
The environnement seems to work fine, but can't configure network card.
You gotta search a lot for the drivers.
Even if you buy one because you don't wanna make your own, they don't garanty that every programs will work
As long as you buy a license for Mac OS X for the computer you install it on, there is nothing at all illegal about it. But don't expect to have a stable system...
The EFI-X module is really, really interesting...
Guys I'm speaking from Running HackPros for 4 years, since before Apple first made the switch to intel. If you can't run it, you dont understand how Mac OSX works. You dont need drivers, you only need a bootloader. Every program works 100%, There are NO hacked Drivers on my systems. Vanilla installs are as close to legal as it gets.
You do not need EFI-X, google: Chameleon
Vanilla installs have not been working for four years. That's incorrect.
And it's not as simple as "you don't know how OS X works".
Vanilla installs have been working since Leopard.
If you can stick a disc in, and then read your motherboard manual, then yes you can install this.
