For the last year, Apple has been saying it will not be producing an Apple branded netbook. Whether it was Steve Jobs saying the company “didn’t know how to make a sub-$500 computer that wasn’t a piece of junk” or Tim Cook calling netbooks junky trinkets that “didn’t deserve the Apple brand,” the message was loud and clear: No Apple netbook.
Now Apple rival, Psystar, is set to fill the void OS X fans are feeling -- maybe. Macrumors reports that with all the recent attention on the netbook market, one of its reader asked Psystar if they had plans to introduce a Mac OS X "netbook" in the future. Psystar's response confirmed that did have a mobile Mac computer in development.
We know most of you are anti-Apple but how do you feel about netbooks running the Mac OS X? Psystar is currently locked in a legal battle with Apple. Apple claims Psystar is in breach of its EULA by offering OS X on non Apple-brand machines. The fact that Psystar didn’t immediately fold when Apple brought them to court last year has led a lot of folk to believe a larger company is behind Psystar and funding its legal team.
