ASUS K541UV: budget hackintosh for development

First you want to ask is a question about why hackintosh instead of MacBook? The answer is simple: because it cheaper and not much worse than original MacBook. For example this lightweight and cheaper notebook can be used in extrime conditions like work in radiation areas and after can be ejected without regret. Every year you can buy new cheaper hackintosh with newest hardware instead of use of obsolete in time expensive Mac. It's a primary reason to make hackintosh!

For example we have to look at ASUS K541UV in angle of Mac Book Air analog having more big display for only $580.

The hardware of ASUS K541UV is light but is sufficient performance to run and use Mac OS High Sierra. It is equipped with Core i3 Kaby Lake CPU, 4Gb DDR4 RAM, 500Gb HDD and Geforce MX920 with 2Gb onboard graphics memory that we have to disable.

I was create Clover configuration EFI folder and Mac OS installer thats you can use to install Mac OS High Sierra. For advance shared HD620 memory improved to 2048Mb with patch.

On this system works fine all hardware instead of WIFI adapter that you can replace to compatible.

So. Now we can look at User path's on the site and see browser and operating system info. We can look at the how much time the user spent on the route.

I have to hide unusable data like robots hits later and publish new version of RevolveR CMS. Also I have to create widgets with total daily stats in preferences panel thats can show how much users goes from other sites and search engines.
