Psystar customer video
Last week, supposed Macintosh clone manufacturer Psystar offered questionable video proof of its operations, but a new video confirms that the company indeed does have a shipping product. Gizmodo reader Patrick "Whiskeyfrown" sent in a one-take video showing a Psystar CPU connected to a monitor, mouse and keyboard, tracing the video cable from the back of the box to the panel. With a press of the power button, the CPU displays a very PC-like POST screen, followed by the familiar grey Apple on a white background.
Some readers comment, however, that the lack of Software Update functionality limits the overall usefulness of the setup, and devalues the savings of the box. One reader points out that it simply appears to be an OSX86 distribution, while another notes that their OSX86 system functions almost perfectly with Software Update.
