Psystar might be locked in a legal battle with Apple, one that could result in them getting shut down, but that hasnít stop the Florida-based company from releasing a brand new computer model running the OS X operating system. Dubbed Open(3), the latest Mac clone from Psystar drops the conventional mini-tower for a slimline case and features upgraded specs with Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processors.


The base configuration starts at $599 for a 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo system with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 500GB 7,200RPM SATA hard drive and GeForce 8400GS 256MB graphics. The machine can further be configured with up to a 2.53GHz Core 2 Quad processor, 4GB of RAM, two 1TB drives, GeForce 9500 GT graphics and a Blu-ray burner Ė but tick all those options and you'll be looking at something closer to $2,000.

Psystar has also refreshed the OpenPro with a new base configuration, rack mount chassis and bootable RAID options. Check out all the details over at the companyís website.
