    Read this on another Apple blog, apparently Psystar is still going strong. They created a Youtube video of their 'Open PC' running three different OS's, one including OS X.

    I'll be satisfied when I see a youtube video of a customer opening a Psystar box;)

    I wouldn't rule it out this easily, but I'm with NC MacGuy: where's the beef? As far as I know it's still 100% Vapor(hard)Ware, and maybe even ScamWare or My-Creators-Are-In-The-Federal-Pen-For-FraudWare.

    For some reason this whole "Psystar" thing sounds like a hoax.

    If anyone has been stupid enough to buy one and OS X needs to be re-installed guess what you will have to pay a $50 shipping charge back to them to have it done. This to me is god dam outrageous and doesn't make a lot of sense and also gives them full access to all your data which is for me a total no way.

    I for one would love to see microsofts spin on this as they probably are breaking some licence conditions of theirs as well.

    The backgrounds of these wankers whom have little to any business sense would be kinda nice to find out.

    It smells of fraud and ripping anyone stupid enough in them.

    They will need huge amounts of money if they want to take on apple legally in any way. If that happens it will be fun to watch.
