HacBook Elite

It’s not as svelte as the latest MacBook Pro (or even the original from ten years ago) but the HacBook Elite offers a nice discount on existing Apple options. It starts with a refurbished business class HP laptop that comes with an Intel i5 processor, a 14-inch 1600×900 display, and customizable options which include up to 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage space, all in all putting it in direct competition with the MacBook Pro from 2013. Most importantly it can dual boot both Windows and native OS X without the use of emulators, making it a solid option for developing Mac apps on the cheap. We can’t comment on the legality of the thing, though, so buy at your own risk.
