Apple isn't happy with Psystar. Unable to secure a summary judgement from courts to crush Psystar, it now has to contend with a new hack from the company that allows Snow Leopard to install on PCs, a nightmare for Apple which relishes tight control of its products.  (Source: AP)

The new $50 hack works with Intel multicore systems. It provides an easy and user-friendly route to create a hackintosh. It also is handy for Mac developers who can consolidate their installs of different versions of OS X onto a single machine.  (Source: Apple Insider)
Psystar continues its campaign of defiance against a controlling Apple, offers handy product for enthusiasts and developers alike

"Hi, I'm a MAC"
" And I'm a PC "

From Apples own commercials, direct quotes. And you are telling me there is not a distinction ?

That's just a marketing gimick to set their brand name apart. They keep using their brand name, while refering to the other guy as a generic bland item.

Apple has been using that "gimick" for 30 years now to set themselves apart from Windows based machines. You guys are trying to buck a very long trend. No matter what you say, most people see Apples as being very different from PC's.

You are not going to win this with me. If you came here and put a gun to my head, I would still fight you on it. So why waste your breath ?

The trend was not that MAC wasn't a PC, it was that it was special among PC's. The MAC is a PC. It is a personal computer.

You are quite overdramatic (troll much), but as everyone can see, you are wrong. Also breath is not wasted with text.

Have a nice day.

Apple's were always PCs (as in Personal Computers), but once they started using Intel CPUs, and other PC (x86 meaning) and actually allowing Windows to run on them, they truly became PCs and all the Mac stuff became pure marketing. Aside from an EFI BIOS, an Apple PC is identical in parts to a Windows based (x86) PC. Also a gimmick is a gimmick no matter how long they use it, Macs and Windows based PCs are all PCs.
