    Please no Apple-fanboy negative remarks about the Psystar.

    Your experiences with it?

    I am now confused... what will we talk about in this thread? :D

    I am curious how well they run, if at all.

    From what I have read they run, but the fans are always on 100% which gets to be annoying and you cant really update through the Apple's software update. Apparently Pystar takes the Apple updates and somehow modifies them and puts them on their website so their buyers can update their software

    But look out for that Pystar/Apple legal battle, Pystar may not be around for too much longer

    Psystar is for the lazy and cheap.

    Psystar = hackintosh.

    You can build your own quad core hackintosh cheaper and more powerful than what psystar has to offer. Psystar is made for those who don't have enough technical knowledge to install OS X on their own system.

    Don't feel like building your own quad core?

    Pickup a cheap quad core dell dimension 530 - I believe the new releases are completely functional out of the box and has all the necessary drivers for it.

    From what I hear it sucks and I believe everything cent of it.

    Besides hacintosh computers are for people who enjoy the thrill not for lazy bums who just want to buy prebuild computers. So I hope Psystar fails.
