Also dubbed the ‘Hackintosh’, this ‘Open Computer‘ from Psystar is $400 per unit and capable of running an unmodified version of OS X Leopard kernel.
They will even pre-install Leopard on the factory floor for free so you can have the Mac experience out of the box. This is perfect if you’re new to the Mac and you want a Mac but don’t want to spend $2000 to join Steve’s club.
Hot Damn, I’m ordering one, this is definitely the Apple Alternative.
The Base Config is:
- 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Processor
- 2GB of DDR2 667 memory
- Integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics
- 20x DVD+/-R SATA drive that is Lightscribe-capable
- 4 rear USB Ports
knock, knock, knock…oh rats, here comes the APPL attorneys.
