    excuse my ignorance, but what is the difference between pystar and axiotron? I'm just curious.

    as i see it axiotron is essentially doing the same thing that pystar is being sued for, which is putting apple OSX software on non-apple hardware. unless they have some contract with apple or something which i doubt.

    someone enlighten me.

    axitron is the modbook right? well they're using apple hardware, just modifying it. they're modified macbooks. pystar is not using any apple hardware. what you do with your apple hardware after purchase is up to you including modding, which can void the warranty provided by apple. pystar involves no apple hardware anywhere.

    The mod book is is a hardware modification - they are taking a macbook pro and taking the screen off and placing it in a enclosure and resell some software. It uses Apple's origional hardware so it does not violate Apple's SLA,. They are converting a notebook into a tablet. More info here. Axitron is using Apple hardware all the way.

    Psystar is a cloner, they are hacking OSX to run the OS on non apple hardware and violating the terms of usage
