projectQ brings new life to Hackintosh
In April 2008 a Florida company called Psystar arrived on the Mac scene with a desktop hackintosh called OpenMac, a $399 Mac-compatible tower built from generic PC components (naturally, I had to have one.)
Even though Apple released the original MacBook Air in January 2008, it was expensive and not small enough for some users. Enter the $400 DIY Apple netbook built atop a Dell mini 9. (Naturally, I had to build my own.) In April 2009 Dell cut the price of entry in half when it released the ultimate Hackintosh surrogate, the $200 Vostro A90.
