There's a New Kid on the Hackintosh Block

Remember all the drama between Psystar and Apple this last year? The Florida-based company has since ceased to nab any profits after Apple managed to sue them for illegally selling Hackintoshes–and rather conspicuously might we add. Well, now another company has come out of the closet with their own line of Hackintoshes: Quo Computer. The company claims that there are many virtues of using a Mac, though they offer computers that run on Linux and Windows as well. Or, you can even get all three!

Of course, the question you might be asking yourself is, how is Quo not getting in trouble for doing this? Especially considering Psystar was under such fire last year. Well, Quo is making sure that systems that come with OS X installed have to agree to the EULA before the software is installed. Additionally, Quo is also heading out to the Apple Store themselves and purchasing copies of OS X and installing the software if their customers request it. Now, that’s service.

What is peculiar, however, is that Quo Computer doesn’t sell computers over the internet. The Hackintoshes run anywhere between 00 and 00, and the computers contain some pretty beefy innards. Currently, all processors are Quad, but Quo Computer is planning on upgrading it’s top tier model, the maxQ, to an Intel Core i7 six core 3.6GHz processor. But really, it’s up to the customer what they want included on the computer–Quo Computer is just there to put it together for you.
