Apple The website of a Miami-based networking and security solutions reseller became inaccessible Monday, shortly after the company began advertising an unauthorized Mac clone for a fraction of the cost of Apple's cheapest system. Dubbed OpenMac, the USD 400 offering from Psystar Corporation is described as 'a low-cost high-performance computing platform' based on the ongoing OSX86Project - a hacker-based initiative aimed at maintaining a version of the Mac OS X operating system for everyday PCs. The website is back online now, and the machine has been renamed to Open Computer. Update: Psystar says they will continue to sell the Open Computer system, despite the fact that it appears to violate Apple's EULA. "We're not breaking any laws," they insisted.

It is possible that parts of the EULA is illegal, especially when there is specific law against such terms (clauses). But as a whole, EULA is a valid contract, even if there are invalid terms

EULAs are valid. BUT only in some parts of the world! I do suggest you to remember that when claiming they are valid.

good luck trying to convince a judge otherwise.

Atleast here the judge clearly said the EULA is invalid, both the EULA in the case and EULAs as a concept. But that applies only to Finland, I can't say about any other countries for sure.
