I've been casually following the news about Pystar and I just saw that someone has posted a video of one of their computers. So now that they are actually selling hackintoshes, what do you think Apple will do? Are they going to sue or consider them insignificant? I wish I could be a bug on the wall when the first clueless user calls Apple support because they are having problems with the OS. What's your serial number? Oh that's not an Apple computer, you're SOL fella. [evil]

I would imagine apple would sue them, though given how noisy the damned things are they might just let them loose just to make the genuine article look like a better proposition.

For only $amount dollars more you can have a $model_name which doesn't sound like a jet taking off etc ...

Every hear a G5 with a bad mainboard or thermal sensor? It's *loud*! This is part of my Apple hatred...we've gone through hell trying to get such machines repaired by Apple. So...don't be so sure the genuine article is that much better. [Razz]

I'm not, I generally assume they are no better or worse build quality wise than any other name brand machine...

I was just taking the other sides viewpoint for a short while.
