Macbook air clone runs OS X

Macbook air wannabees are probably a dime a dozen. Everytime I visit a computer shop, there seems to be another Macbook air knock-off that promises to be the thinnest and lightest computer I’ll ever use. Okay, then, good for you guys. But they’re all running Windows, so you know, it’s kind of a dealbreaker. I mean, if you’re going for a Macbook air clone, then you just have to go for the full experience, right?

This Chinese computer manufacturer created yet another Macbook air knockoff that not only inherits the original’s good looks, but it also has almost-identical packaging! M.C. Gadget says that the box is indistinguishable from the ones produced in Cupertino. Also, the packaging is really convincing. If it wasn’t made from plastic – instead of aluminum, like the original – it may even fool a lot of people.

Thing is that Macbook air knock-off still runs Windows. I guess skinning XP, running Windows 7 (especially with the large icons on the Superbar, which I love so much) or installing one of the many dock applications can fool some people at a distance. But if you really want to go for the ultimate Mac OS X experience, you better hackintosh your Macbook air knockoff.

From Eee PC.net:

One guy purchased one in the Philippines for around $400. Once he got it home, he turned it into a more real Macbook. He installed OS X Snow Leopard on the device. The WiFi card wouldn’t work, so it was replaced with a compatible model. Also the touch pad doesn’t work quite as it should on a real Macbook.

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been working with? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest site and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?
