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.

to tell you the truth if i purchased any piece of equipment, from PC's to Mac's if it failed after 30 days i certainly wouldn't be replacing the parts myself. Perhaps you can't replace the motherboard on the mac mini, but then you can't replace the motherboard on a dell as they are pretty much bespoke to the case, and again if i purchased a white box generic pc from my local supplier, if it failed after 30 days i would get him to replace the motherboard.
