Psystar Back Up! Mac clone now called Open Computer instead of OpenMac

A simple name change has Psystar back on their feet selling their cheap desktop computers that are configurable with OS X on them.

Toshiba Portege R500-12Q – it has a 128GB SSD!

Toshiba Portege R500-12Q – it has a 128GB SSD!

This notebook has a 12.1-inch screen that is LED backlit, a Core 2 Duo ULV U7700 processor, a couple gigs of RAM, a DL-DVD-RW drive, and then the 128GB SSD drive. This might actually be one of the most energy efficient notebooks there is that still maintains a respectable about of storage space.

I mean, sure the ULV processor, LED backlit display, and SSD drive will help keep the battery life up, but they also combine to help keep the price up. There wasn’t one listed on any of the sites, and apparently this particular model can only be found on a few of Toshiba’s international sites right now, but I can guarantee it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.
