Apple The soap surrounding PsyStar, the company that offers a Mac clone for sale, just keeps on running. After the initial launch, the company was plagued by doubt and mystery surrounding its actual existence, but soon after videos started popping up of the OpenComputer out in the wild, beyond the company itself. Thanks to CNet, the company may now have fully redeemed itself.

Maybe replace "freaks and geeks" with "script kiddies" ;) the ones who wouldn't build it by themselves, or maybe "freaks and geeks without enough time" ;)

Regarding the pirated versions: is MacOS preinstalled on the OpenComputer? If so, it's indeed strange that they omitted the "iStuff"... what would be the reason for this?

If it's not preinstalled, then I don't get why someone could save $150

iLife does not *come* with Mac OS X, it is *bundled* with new Macs. If you buy a retail copy of Mac OS X and iLife 08, it'll probably cost about $150 as indicated.

Exactly. Like the thousands who go daily to InsanelyMac asking silly questions. They want to build a hackintosh because it has become so fashionable, but they don't have a clue.
