    Article over at Technews has more details about the upcoming iBox clone you may have already heard about.

    Finally it looks like I'll be able to get a cheap box to run Mac OSX on, but not from Apple! John Fraser is (sort of) getting into the clone business 5 years after Apple shut down their 3 year long 'experiment' in licensing the hardware. Based on off the shelf apple components in a custom pizza box style case with no bolted on display, a barebones 'iBox' will be around 300 USD and require a processor, disk and memory (and the OS). Complete systems (again, without the OS) should start at around 650 USD.

    What does the iBox include you may ask?

    G4 466-1330Mhz (Dual Capable)
    128MB-2048MB PC100 Memory
    1000base-t Ethernet (10 and 100 also)
    AGP Slot for AGP Video
    Support for ADC Monitors and Video Cards
    2 PCI slots
    Airport Slot for 11mbps 802.11b
    USB 1.1 (2 Ports)
    Firewire 400 (2 ports)

    Looks cool! I want one :D
    Apple will probably take it to court though, they're *****es when it comes to people copying them.
