Video of Mac OS X 10.4.1 for Intel running on Dell laptop posted online

Video of Mac OS X 10.4.1 for Intel has been posted running on a run-of-the-mill Dell laptop.

The “About This Mac” box isn’t very clearly shown – do you have a zoom on that camera, guys?

MacDailyNews Take: What do you think? Real or fake? We have our doubts, since the most obvious thing in the world would be to show the “About This Mac” box clearly.

  1. Yup, Apple really knows what they are doing.

    I hope millions use this hacked version, and then Leopard crushes Longhorn in the press. Then all of those hacks can buy a Mac for real.


  2. I think it’s fake. On the dock you can see about 1000 applications. That’s a lot of Mac apps to have installed already considering this has been out for what? 24 hours? and that’s a lot of *mac apps* for a PC person to have…

    But I could be wrong

  3. I think it’s “lipstick on a pig”.

    ps yea, I think it’s vnc or pearpc – it does seem rather slow doesn’t it.

    pps the other question is, how would someone have ripped off a copy of the Intel OS X anyway,… weren’t the machines all pre installed? Are people trying to say that someone managed to acquire either a disk image from an installed machine, or an install disk, whilst they were at the WWDC, with Apple’s watchful eye looking over their shoulder? Pretty good effort if so.
