          <div>I feel like a Mac Pro isn't super cost-effective for
            this. But if you want to run OS X under virtualization, it'd
            do more than a Mini or something...I just don't know how
            much it matters. IMHO, what OS X is good at (video/audio
            creation/editing, etc.) doesn't work well under
            virtualization anyway. There's often too much hardware to
            pass-through and the RAM and real-time processing
            requirements are too high. <br>
            <br>

          Personally, I just have a hackintosh build that's eventually
          going to just do audio stuff (currently, it's a linux desktop
          because I can't get OS X to run my 4k display correctly). <br>
