    This morning I read that someone has an Apple clone on the market for 399 without the os and 100+ more for the latest system :thumbs:

    Did Apple change their policy or is someone looking to take on Apple in court?

    Interesting, thanks for the info.

    Wish I had gotten this info two weeks ago I'd be ordering one, however will have to wait for my new laptop to go really out of date now :laugh:

    I wouldn't go for this... I read that Psystar is a garage based company from one of the mac magazines sites (I can't remember which one)... somewhere in Miami.

    You probably wouldn't get good support, if any, and there is no guarantee that it would continue to work with any updates Apple releases in the future. I also have a feeling that if you had to call Apple for any problems that they wouldn't help either since the EULA states that OSX is licensed for use on an Apple Mac.

    just my 2 cents.

    I would not buy one either. Why give up my nice, tiny little Mac Mini for a big box PC?
    Also, forget about ever taking it to the Apple store.
    People who want Apple clones just don't get Apple.
    THey make the whole package.
    They are as much a hardware company as software.

    That all said, if I had cash to blow it would be fun to have one of these to play with.
    And if they can find a market for it then more power to them but I will not be buying.
