No way. At some point in the not too distant future once all computers have race mixed, they will all be beige. Beige is the wave of the future, and the least rayciss colour possible. If you disagree, then you're basically a computer nazi.

They sure know how to give people a grilling.

Yup. They use 486 CPUs.

And with a whooping 32mb of RAM. Exciting, isn’t it? 😀

Now seriously... these are really exact copies. Perfect for a hackintosh though, this level of copycat I have only seen on the Xiaomi Mi notebooks. These are also fairly good for hackintosh too, but I don’t have patience for another Hackintosh again.

Pfft! Nah, that doesn't seem exciting, if you have so little RAM 🤣 Unless it's a vintage powerful computer, then I would see where it's going...

Well, I wouldn't say that. Maybe the computer manufacturers who came up with the idea of their new powerful computers were influenced by the nice design of the Mac Pro and decided to use Apple's style for the new wave of their desktops? Just a wild guess 😉

Autistic-level factory cable management. So basically it's "powerful" for those people who like to brag about their PC case, while most people who care for performance shove it under the desk and don't care how fancy the case looks as long as a new video card doesn't require a new case.
Or those people who hate Apple but are in the closet about Apple's asthetic like a 28 year old is for not being a furry but likes the art style. 😒

Puh-leeze.

Yeah I feel deceived by the thread title too. I was hoping for something interesting in cpu development. Quantum computing? Affordable RISC-V in atx format? But no it’s about a computer case.

Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.

I've been using a hackintosh on the desktop since 2011. It actually works pretty decently. Every time I've had problems, whenever I look it up it seems to be an issue affecting authentic Macs as well. Though, I tend to avoid running the latest updates. I only upgrade once software starts requiring a newer OS. For me the bigger issue is that I just hate a lot of things about OSX. Sure, it's nice that it's based on Unix, but the interface is kind of counter intuitive despite what the die hards claim. The inability to cut files is really fucking annoying, and it slows down my work considerably. I also absolutely hate the window management, and the over reliance on keyboard shortcuts to get things done. It's also pretty lame that I can never find the software I need, and have to resort to using PCs or emulators on occasion. I think the only thing that keeps me using it is that virus writers tend to focus more energy on Windows.

Of course you can cut and paste files and folders on macOS (hint: Cmd + Opt + V), and its reliance on keyboard shortcuts is what makes it so great for power users (along with ability to redefine keyboard shortcuts for any application and extensive GUI scripting unparalleled on any other platform).

If you need software that only runs on Windows, maybe you should run Windows in the first place.

Looks like Apple is dictating the game again.
Allot of OEM manufactures are trying to ride the NEW Mac Pro computer design.

That Pavilion was around before the new Mac Pro was unveiled.

I agree with ShovelKnight. And, the software you need are all over the place, you can find them easily. I will list later all the apps I have used so far to prove my point.
