Psystar shipping $399 Mac clones; Apple still mum

Picture 11 1 2

According to its website, Psystar has started shipping the first of its $399 Open computers, which they will pre-install with Leopard for an additional $155.

They also note that they have a new location and signs in the windows, further showing that they might be real, but until I see an Open running Leopard myself, I’m a skeptic.

Still no word from Apple on what action, if any, the Mac maker will take against the unauthorized Mac cloner. We’re staying on this story, as it’s very interesting for a few reasons. If Apple lets Psystar alone and allows the clones to march, which PC makers will be next?
