Apple C&D Incoming in 5…4…3…2

A brassy little outfit called Psystar is getting a lot of attention today for peddling Leopard-compatible desktops. These “OpenMacs,” as the company’s named them, run on Intel (INTC) chips and feature 2GB of memory, a DVD drive and whatnot. They’re built from PC parts and, if you’d like, Psystar will even outfit them with Mac OS X Leopard.

Sounds like a compelling proposition for folks who would like the Mac OS on cheap hardware. Too bad the Mac OS X EULA specifically forbids installing the OS on non-Apple computers. Apple (AAPL) legal is, no doubt, already half-finished with a cease-and-desist letter.
