psystar open mac clone

What ongoing legal battle? Psystar is pumping out a brand-new hackintosh, running Mac OS X Leopard for considerably less money than the real deal. Open(3) features a minimum 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive and a GeForce 8400GS 256 MB graphics card. With those minimum specs, sans keyboard, mouse and monitor, the machine sells for $599. It’s more like $1,050 to deck it out with twice the RAM and storage, a Core2Quad processor and a top-tier graphics card, but that’s still about $1,000 less than Apple’s offerings. They must be fuming in Cuptertino, so order now before all hell breaks lose. [Psystar via Engadget]
