Psystar offers proof

Amidst a sea of controversy, newly announced Mac clone maker Psystar has released a video on YouTube illustrating that it does indeed have the capacity to run the Mac OS X on its Open Computer. While this does not clear Psystar of the questions surrounding the legality of the process, it proves that the company has the capacity to deliver on its promise. A note at the end of the video claims that the presentation was edited and finalized on Final Cut Studio, running on a Leopard-enabled Open Computer

The video clip shows the Leopard Open Computer running a full version of the game Quake 4 with all graphical options turned on, with the only upgrade being the addition of the Nvidia 8600 GT graphics card - an option available from the company for

The company also showed shots of its offices from the parking lot, as well as its front doors, most likely to dispel rumors of those who believe the company doesn't exist.

    "This video is no longer available..." guess that pretty much says it all!

    I hope that applies to this free exposure for them as well..."no longer available"

    the video is still

    around on you tube so I guess you were trying some other site. While I personally abhor the idea of 'extreme piracy', I am amazed at the illegal operation these people are able to pull off.

    Check this link. Still alive.

    It's funny, they show a parking lot and a hackintosh. I wonder how many people think they have a legitimate operation now.

    what proof?

    That video proves nothing...for all we know there is an iMac off screen with a cable running to the display...or a mini just sitting inside a 'beige' box.

    When an independent reviewer gets one and says its real, thats proof.

    So, where are they located? Is it still a secret?

    the best part is the clearly photoshopped shop-front towards the end of the video.

    The video clip is not convincing at all...

    This was a really stupid thing to do, because all they've done is provided Apple with video evidence that they are breaching Apple's license agreements. As if proclaiming it over the 'Net wasn't enough in the first place.

    Whoever runs Psystar must be a bit thick, I think.

    We're not a scam! Honest!

    Hmm... I get lots of spam offering cheap "legal" software and "This is NOT a scam!" written all over it.

    Not convincing at all.

    my guess Florida

    Sorry Floridians but this seems the perfect place to rent a cheap storefront and the easy life scam artists.
