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.

Member since:

Installing OSX on a non-apple computer would be a breach of contract according to the EULA, which is essentially the contract you are agreeing to when you purchase the operating system. So Macintosh is allowed to sue you for breaching.

For arguments sake lets say the above is true (which many dispute), this is not an issue for the company selling the computer. Note we are talking about an End User License Agreement, the seller of the computer is not the End User.
