Apple buys and copies technology from other companies, such as *****, Motorola, IBM, Intel, Samsung, repackages it, and claims its the best thing since sliced bread. If you dare do anything similar Apple has always been in the market for suing people for "infringement" since the 1980's when they actively went after clone makers. Nothing new.

Their going after their competitors who sold Mac compatibles is the reason why IBM not only took the business market, but also the home market, as it was easier, and more effective to copy the IBM, who allowed it freely as long as you rewrote your own BIOS software, then it was to face Apple's law suits.

Apple's market share dropped, people forgot about their lawsuits, and people more or less forgot about Apple, other then that it was the "cool" and "different" thing. When the iPod became popular and there was a slight spike in Apple popularity, their old business practices resurfaced quickly.

Hack-intosh's (when compared to a Mac Pro Workstation) can be had for around 30% less or more, depends on how much cash will you just end up reinvesting in better components.

Edit ... Really? *****? X e r o x is on the damn censor's list?
