Psystar adds new Mac OS desktop

Apple's least favorite clone maker has a new desktop out that comes with Mac OS X preinstalled for $599.

Psystar has decided to not let a legal battle get in the way of its product road map.

The company introduced the Open(3) Wednesday, which as the name implies is the third model that Psystar has shipped with Mac OS X preinstalled. As you may also recall, Apple has not taken kindly to Psystar's decision to ship such a product, and the two companies are currently exchanging legal briefs and arguments over whether Psystar has a right to sell Open Computers with Mac OS X.

Psystar's Open(3) is basically the same product as the Open Computer that it replaces , but the company swapped the larger tower chassis found on the first model for a slimline desktop chassis. It costs $599 with a 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GBs of memory, and a 500GB hard drive.

Back in October Psystar said it plans to ship a notebook with Mac OS X preinstalled, but it didn't set a target date and nothing has surfaced yet.
