Video Evidence of a Real Psystar Mac Clone?

Video Evidence of a Real Psystar Mac Clone?

Gizmodo has posted a video clip sent in by a reader that supposedly shows a Psystar Mac Clone up and running in the home of an actual Psystar customer.

"The thing boots up and runs pretty damn fast, says Patrick, but Software Update won't recognize it so you won't be able to patch. System Profiler thinks that it's a Mac Pro."



The video is fairly convincing in that it appears actually to show the Mac OS running on non-Mac hardware. However, there is nothing that definitively identifies the machine as from Psystar. With the right hardware, resources, and patience, it's actually not terribly difficult to get the Mac OS to run on a non-Mac system, as many members of the OSx86 Project could tell you. So is the video legitimately of a Psystar system or is it just an OSx86 hoax?

Cool.  I don't know why someone would want one except ou tof novelty, but I'm glad it works.

You can make your own hack-intosh anyway with off the shelf parts if you don't mind messing with the OSX installer. These guys are just trying to profit from it and will likely get sued out of existance, if they are even for real in the first place.

im not one to screw with osx and build hack-intosh's. being sued out of existence kind of reminds me of lik-sang which got sued out of existence for selling jap. psp's to other places (which in some cases it sold psp's to sony execs) hopefully psystar wont get sued since apple *might* lower its prices. honestly they use off the self parts for the macs and charge such a huge premium.

Ugh, don't mention what happened to Lik-Sang.  It just makes me hate Sony with a passion.  What they did was evil.
