    While this step-by-step tutorial is a good starting point for getting Pear-PC installed, it doesn’t address why one would favor this approach over Hackintoshing their Zenbook.
    I have had various MacBooks for the past few years and am well established in OS X with my software library; however, the Asus Zenbook ux301 is a Retina MacBook Pro crammed into a MacBook AIR’s case for the same price.
    Why wouldn’t I want to buy one and hackintosh it?
    Have you tried and had a bad experience?
    If so, what type of issues did you run into?
    Does Pear-PC run sufficiently well to be a daily-driver OS?
