This is becoming an all too common occurrence, Psystar is already selling their Mac clones (although they’ve filed for bankruptcy) and last week it was “Russian Macs” now comes Quo, obviously looking to upset the status… quo ok bad pun but hey it was too easy. Quo however is looking to do something other Mac cloners haven’t tried thus far, they actually want to open a retail location.
The California based company states their showroom and website are a go for an early June launch. “It’s exciting. We are trying to stay as close to Apple as we can with our products,” Rashantha De Silva, Quo founder, told CNET News. “We are trying to mimic things as much as we can. I’m hoping that Apple sees the value in what we are doing.”
Something tells me they won’t and Quo will be another in a long line of litigants with a looming court date with Apple. But… on the other hand, this constant barrage of would be OS X original equipment manufacturers might eventually wear Apple down, or more specifically wear down Apple’s board of directors. Never mind the Hackintosh community for a moment, the legitimate (or would be legitimate) companies already lined up and all but begging Apple to license OS X to them would certainly boost the company’s bottom line by a considerable amount.
