It has recently come to our attention that installing the OS X software on anything but a Mac violates Apple’s End User License Agreement. We received an anonymous email informing us of the legality issues which referenced the Psystar case and we definately don’t want to recreate that case. It was never our intention to violate Apple’s EULA in any way. In light of this, we have discontinued this offer.

MacDailyNews Take: That didn’t take long.
Below is our original article, originally headlined, “Attention Apple legal: Kuhgar tries selling Dell Mini 10v preloaded with Mac OS X Snow Leopard,” as posted on Friday, December 4, 2009 at 7:19pm:
According to some outfit called Kuhgar, based in Hartland, Wisconsin, you can “own the functionality of a Mac at 1/4 the cost!”
It’s surprising that they bother to add the disclaimer, “The statement has not endorsed by Apple or Dell.” It’s wholly unsurprising that it makes no grammatical sense.
Kuhgar’s site states, “The Mini 10v is everything you want in a mobile companion and more. It may be small, but you’ll be surprised by all the fun features packed inside. Exclusively from Kuhgar, buy the Mini 10v preloaded with Mac OS X Snow Leopard! Have all functionality of a Mac at 1/4 of the price! This deal cannot be found anywhere else.”
The site is festooned with Apple trademarks including the Apple logo itself. And you thought the guys behind Psystar were stupid; at least they didn’t try selling unauthorized Mac clones days after a judge slapped a multi-million dollar judgement on an unauthorized Mac cloner.
Kuhgar’s site is here.
MacDailyNews Take: Get ready, Kuhgar, Apple’s likely to go all Psystar on your ass in 10, 9, 8…
MacDailyNews Note: The disclaimer at the very bottom of the site reads, in part, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone,” which may hint at the possibility that this company is playing PR games and wants to get noticed by offering something that will grab attention, but that they have no intention of actually selling. We’ll follow up on this if and when we find out more information.
