Embattled Macintosh clone vendor Psystar has rolled out its fourth new system, despite a looming legal action from Apple that threatens to shut the company down.
The new model is a $600 (£420) mini-tower model dubbed the Open(3). The system includes a pre-installed copy of OS X Leopard with the option of a dual-boot Linux setup. Hardware for the $600 configuration includes a 500GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM and a GeForce 8400GS graphics card.
The Open(3) brings Psystar's Mac product line to three models, including two tower systems and a rackmount server. The company also offers a line of Linux and Windows Server systems.
Psystar's decision to sell systems equipped with MacOS X has landed the company in hot water with Apple, which has not legally licensed a third party to sell Macintosh clones since co-founder Steve Jobs returned as chief executive in the late 1990s.
Apple filed suit against Psystar last July for illegally distributing its software. The company pointed out that the OS X end-user licensing agreement forbids owners from installing the operating system on any hardware not manufactured by Apple.
