Default Computer experts have you heard of this computer maker?

Someone sent me a link to a new computer company that claims to have a new system that can run 'any' OS and at very high speed. I am not technical enough to understand or know in this is worth looking into. For me, this would be to build the next generation Hackintosh as I am not sure that the new Mac Pro will deliver that much better performance for the price.

Can you guys check this out and post opinions?

This will most likely get squashed by Apple's lawyers. Read up on "psystar", who tried to do this exact same thing a few years ago.

Trick is they won't install the o/s for u - most likely anyway - that's the way around the lawyer game

Just sell u hardware that's ready to Install - then ur own your own

Which is still pretty cool b/c everything would have native support inside the Mac
