“Earlier this week Macworld ran a story on German Apple Mac clone-maker PearC,” Nick Spence reports for Macworld UK.

“The company, like Psystar in the US, with whom Apple is currently involved in an ongoing court battle, sells Mac clones starting at around £660. [PearC], run by HyperMegaNet, based in Wolfsburg, Germany, currently ships to 23 destinations including the UK via delivery firm DHL,” Spence reports.

Spence reports, “Following our story, PearC representatives contacted Macworld to clarify points raised by the report. Firstly HyperMegaNet spokesman Dirk Blößl got in touch to insist PearC are doing nothing wrong and insisting the company did not sell illegal copies of Mac software. ‘We buy our licenses at a well-known German software distributor,’ Blößl said.”

Spence reports, “Jan Spitzmacher, responsible PearC’s PR [said]… ‘We are planning a mobile version of our PearC’s, but as they have to have very special hardware, it’s very hard to find a notebook on the market which works perfectly with Mac OS X. Some work, but not well and truly. This is not what we want to sell, all components have to work.'”
