    ModbookPro is coming soon. I'm sure it is not going to be cheap but I would love to own one, if anything, just because they are totally different. Windows 8 and Lion. Best of both worlds...

    Actually, Apple is working with the company. Read the article.

    Apple shouldn't have a problem with it. Psystar was selling what was basically hackintoshes, slapping OSX onto machines that weren't certified for it without any permission. These guys are taking actual Apple hardware bought from the store and reconfiguring it into another form factor. It's really nothing more than a souped up aftermarket mod, which is perfectly legal since Apple made their money off the initial sale, and can't control what people do with their stuff after it's left the store.

    ...and it's tempting.
