    Looks like a scam...

    It's illegal to have OS X in other than Apple's Macintosh. And who want's to pay $100k for that machine?

    It's not illegal, but it is against the EULA.

    The company gives no street address, only e-mail and phone. Why take a chance with a company of dubious reputation.

    *Illegal to sell PCs with OS X. That's what I had to say.

    Whats also funny about this *obvious* scam is that under about us, they list a phone no. and nothing else (except ramble about OSx86) The only thing is, every other machine has a reasonable price. Also, bet they will go away if Apple Legal gets a hold of them...

    Looks like someone ready to launch a product. They will have to change the name, AppleOpen will most certainly be struck down just as Psystar had to remove Mac from their Open Mac. i7's currently don't play very nice with OSX so it will be interesting to see if they have worked out the kinks and if they have, will they give back to OSx86 orkeep it to themselves.
