Tekzilla Weekly: Camera tossing, better Twitter, the best photo printer, best GPS Video
While the desktop is still legal, Rich Brown unboxes the first Mac clone in years: the Psystar Open Computer.
For the price, the best HD camera currently available.
We commend Psystar for pushing ahead with its mission to sell its own PCs with Apple's Mac OS X operating system. We're also impressed by its continuing efforts to ensure reliability. And although the OpenPro is a better deal than any PC currently offered by Apple, you can get a faster PC overall from traditional Windows vendors.
If you've heard of Psystar, chances are you know the risks involved with buying its systems. You might also have guessed, correctly, that in this OS X Snow Leopard-based Open(Q) system, Psystar once again shows up Apple in the price-performance department. There's little else to recommend this spare system, but if fast and cheap OS X is what you need, Psystar has you covered, at least for as long as it's still around.
