Apple Almost everything has a processor and/or memory chips these days, including keyboards. Apple's keyboards are no exception; they have 8Kb of flash memory, and 256 bytes of RAM. K. Chen has found a way to very easily install keyloggers and other possibly malicious code right inside these Apple keyboards (more here). Proof of concept code is here as well.

Since the flaw itself is in the firmware for the keyboard, I would hazard a guess if the person was using one of the Apple keyboards, then yes, they would be.

But Psystar doesn't use Apple hardware. They come with Logitech keyboards and mice, so far as I know.
