Pystar’s Hax4u a bit overpriced

Here we go again with the open computer scam mac clone. Ars has some more coverage, but what’s really interesting there are the comments imo.

Oh, and there’s some photos too, but the guy posting it might be someone from pystar, so beware.

So, the deal it’s this: you get more or less 200€ worth of hardware, with a copy of Leopard. You got osx already hacked and runing, but to reinstall it you need to re-hack it too (or download the hacked images you find floating on the net). In your Country the Apple eula might not be legally binding, so it could even be legal, but given the number of people installing osx everywhere (including on the eepc and on the OQO) you’re probably better off buying the pieces wherever you want and assemble your own mac clone.
