HacBook-Elite-Mac-OS-X

We love our MacBooks as much as the next guy or gal, but they’re nowhere near as cheap as a “hackintosh” alternative. The HacBook Elite runs OS X for 1/3 the cost of a Mac out of the box. The package and guts of the HacBook Elite are a refurbished HP EliteBook with an aluminum body, magnesium-reinforced chassis, water-resistant finish and a glass touchpad, along with the same hardware specs as a 2013 MacBook Pro. That’s an Intel i5, up to 8GB RAM, 1600 x 900 14″ HD+ display, up to 1TB of storage and 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless. The only thing you have to do to get this sub-$500 Mac working is load up a copy of OS X, but therein lies the rub. Apple doesn’t like their OS running on other people’s hardware, so we can’t confirm HacBook Elite will ever even see actual release.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
