Click to viewReader Patrick sent us these photos of his Psystar machine, which was captured in video earlier today. Here's what these photos tell us. One, Psystar's claim of not being able to reinstall Leopard by yourself is totally true. The package only came with a retail version of Leopard—still shrink-wrapped no less—which doesn't let you install, non-hacked, onto white box machines. It also came with a couple adapters, a power cord, a couple CDs and a case that's largely empty and fairly expandable. Hit the jump to expand the gallery.

@Gofastmazda: I'd say this earns a "meh" because it's no different from the Hackintosh systems people have been doing for a very very long time now. Tell me, what is so unique about this? What makes this special, other than the initial claims that this machine was pretty much a generic Mac clone (which doesn't even boot like a Mac)?

I imagine that anyone who is aware of the legality involved in all of this were not wrong to assume that this was a scam, because technically, it's still not legal. Now that I see that they're using a HACKED version of the OS to run on their little box, I see it's even worse.

Anyway, "meh". This thing can't update, thus is utterly worthless. You're better off putting Ubuntu on it.
