So, I recently decided to replace my Asus E200HA with Intel Atom and ChromeOS (for better performance) with X230 with MacOS and boy was it worth it.

I followed couple of GitHub repos with all the instructions I could imagine and flawlessly installed High Sierra with premade EFI from mentioned repos. Install was smooth and fast (I equipped it with a simple 120GB SSD and 8GB of RAM), I had to place only a single kext to make the trackpoint working (+some goofing around with editing it to get the perfect sensitivity of both MouseAcceleration and MouseScrolAcceleration). Performance is amazing, battery life is kinda good (I got mine with used 9 cell that only holds about 2 hours but it's enough for me atm).

Only things not working are:

- Bluetooth

- WIFI (I got an USB adapter but it doesn't support WPA2-Enterprise so I can't use my university's Eduroam network sadly)

- VGA port obviously

- SD Card reader but I don't give an F

And I guess that's it. I didn't even bother checking all those iMessages, Facetime etc coz I'm not even in Apple ecosystem so I don't care. Also yesterday I updated to Mojave via AppStore and to my surprise it updated just as it could be an original Apple machine. Everything works and it's amazing. Performance is good enough for me to edit 1080p60 h264 files on Final Cut and thanks to X230 having an Intel it even exports videos faster than my Hackintosh with Ryzen 5 1600 with 6C/12T
