Lenovo x220 Hackintosh

I recently acquired a Lenovo x220 for $60 to make a nearly 100% compatible hackintosh laptop. The x220 series allows for custom BIOS to be flashed to remove the Wifi whitelist enforced by Lenovo and I was able to install a Broadcom AC wireless card. Following this guide, http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/, I now have a 95% compatible hackintosh laptop. The only thing that doesn't work is the SD card reader which isn't a big deal. I have installed macOS High Sierra on my 256GB mSATA SSD and I've set up the machine for iOS development. I plan to use this machine until I can buy a Macbook Pro or equivalent in the near future. Since the Lenovo x220 was released in 2011, I imagine I have about 2 years before this machine is obsoleted by the newest macOS. I should by that point be able to replace the laptop or buy an official Macbook Pro.
