    Anyone no of any? I am thinking of making a little online biz. But is it legal to sell them wit the OS and everything. I will make the setups buy buying things off of ebay and making custom cases.
    thanks

    i think you'd have to do a level of improvising that would render them unsalable, but i don't know. i do know that motherboards are pretty damn expensive even on ebay, so it might not be that cost-effective...

    i'm curious to hear other's opinions...

    :)

    You will have to read the Mac OS EULA and see what it says. Some EULAs don't allow transfer of rights from person to person, I don't think. Other than that, there's no reason selling physical Macs you built from parts wouldn't be legal, but yeah, I think you'd have a hard time squeaking out any kind of profit on it.
