Apple Sues to Stop Mac Clones

Lawsuit appears to shut down clone maker, whose cheap Macs were getting good reviews.

Maybe it was good reviews that finally killed the Mac clones. Apple has sued to stop a small Florida company from making its own PCs preloaded with the Mac operating system.

After surviving speculation that it was a fraud, Psystar actually shipped the machines. Reviews said their heftier hardware made them a better buy than Apple's like-priced Mac mini.

Some have speculated that Apple couldn't win on legal grounds. But Apple has deep pockets to withstand a long court battle. I suspect Psystar doesn't, and its site is already down.

The attack of the Apple clones appears over.
