Is Psystar planning a Macbook clone?

By Justin Mann on October 29, 2008, 6:02 PM
Psystar is not only trying to one-up Apple when it comes to new hardware deployment, it seems, with recent rumors suggesting that the company is now looking to intrude in the portable market by launching a MacBook clone laptop.

The very light details don't give any hints as to what sort of hardware specs to expect, but so far Psystar has concentrated more on competing in the price arena as opposed to anywhere else. If they do release a MacBook clone, I would imagine they would continue that pattern, trying to squeeze in with an attractive price point.

Kudos to it all in my opinion, if Apple finally has hardware competition they might finally feel at least an ounce of pressure to drop the prices on official Apple hardware.It worked with ipods vs. mp3 players, so at least think about it before shunning it.

I'm not as inclined to a MacBook clone as I would be to a desktop. With the latter you can pick the monitor you want, keyboard, mouse, etc... just the box would be different, and the relevance would be in running OS X seamlessly.In the case of a laptop, you don't want a laptop PC clone, now do you? Apple's laptop hardware is very good and in some cases of excellent quality, so I don't see the big win here.
