Easiest ThinkPads to Hackintosh

#1 Post by sebileis » Fri Apr 26, 2019 1:41 am

Hi all, I've been looking into Hackintoshing one of my ThinkPads and am wondering two things:
-What is the easiest ThinkPad to Hackintosh period (with any version, so if an older version of OS X is easier than newer that is acceptable)?
-What is the easiest ThinkPad to Hackintosh with Mojave?

I've noticed for some ThinkPads you have to remove the BIOS whitelist on the wireless card, or flash the BIOS chip directly, so I'm curious to see which model(s) are the most functional with OS X with the least amount of modding/hacking.

Probably the 20, 30, and T440p machines. Which is the easiest is probably a toss up. I believe all 3 can support Mojave.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
