New Copy Cat Mac: OpeniMac
It seems that Psystar’s knock off MacBooks have emboldened a new company to create their own system, OpeniMac, despite the legal battle Psystar is currently engaged in with Apple.
It’s not 100% clear who this new company is, but it is known that it’s an Argentinean-based dealer. Their product is not an all in one design but they do have a nice new website
up promoting it.
Currently the dealer is offering for only $990:
“A 2.53GHz "OpeniMac" with 3 MB of shared L2 cache, 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM, a 320 GB Serial ATA 7200 rpm drive, an 8X SuperDrive, and an ATI Radeon HD PRO with 256 MB of video memory GDDR3. Another $340 will get you a 19-inch LG LCD display to go along with it.”
There is also a high-end computer called…you guessed it... the "OpeniMac Pro," for $1710. The Pro comes with “a 3.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 6 MB of shared L2 cache, 4 GB of DDR2 SDRAM, a 500 GB Serial ATA 7200 rpm drive, an 8X SuperDrive, a NVIDIA GeForce GS with 1 GB of GDDR3 video memory, and "a brilliant" 20-inch LG widescreen display.”
The OpeniMac website even throws a hit at Apple’s system performance on their website by showing a series of benchmark graphs that compare the two.
