A company named Psystar is advertising a $399 computer they have named “OpenMac”. They claim the machine is built to be a Leopard compatible Mac, which has been constructed from PC parts.
It features the following specs:
- 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
- 2GB of DDR2 667 memory
- Integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics
- 20x DVD+/-R Drive
- 4 USB Ports
- 250GB 7200RPM Drive
According to Macrumors the components can be upgraded. This story found its way on digg this morning, and now when you attempt to visit Psystar’s official site, you get a Database Error.
My guess is, this could already be the last we see of this company, because Apple’s team of lawyers will be all over this by mid-afternoon.
The company even goes so far as to offer Leopard pre-installed on the machines with “minimal patching” which is a violation of Leopard’s EULA, and is specifically prohibited.
