Apparently Apple has yet to win its battle against Open Computer maker Psystar. If you recall, Psystar is making PC’s powered by Mac-OS software on the premise that Apple’s EULA did allow them to do so. Now, Apple and Psystar are in a legal battle on whether Psystar could or could not do what its doing. The lawsuit has been dragging on for nearly six months and PSystar is still selling their Mac clones.

Anyway, no legal action has been taken against Psystar so as of now they are still free to build whatever they want. Plans are coming out that Psystar will be building a notebook, and yes, it runs Mac OS as well. An email to Appleinsider reader from a Psystar spokesperson sort of confirmed that indeed there is a Mac-powered laptop in the pipeline.

Thank you for your interest in Open Computing. Although there is no mobile open computer at the moment, I can tell you that it is something that is in development. Once we release a final product, it will be posted on our website along with an automatic notification for all Open Computing newsletter subscribers.

No release day or price has been set for any potential mobile product line. However I can assure you that at release it will be very competitively priced.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Psystar did make Mac-OS powered PC’s simply because of the fact that Macs are expensive and their software is great. Moreover, Macs are nearly perfect but sometimes seem to deliberately skip over what’s important and that’s where Psystar steps in and fills the gap. Recently, Psystar began shipping Mac clones with Blu-Ray drives despite Apple claiming the hardware to be a "bag of hurt."
