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...

All up in your bidness
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.
