Some notes:

  • The fan is quiet. Much quieter than is heard initial video of the Psystar someone posted. I think that that guy was vacuuming in the background.
  • I didn't order the $90 WiFi option. Big mistake. My office is a long haul from my Airport base station and cable modem. I've heard that the D-Link DWA-556 draft-n WiFi card is recognized as an Apple Airport card and am going to try it over the weekend. It's available for about US$75 on eBay.
  • I tried to launch the Boot Camp assistant but got a funny error message. I'll post the screen shots in another gallery.
  • When you buy a Psystar, frequent the OSX86 Project Wiki and Insanely Mac forums. They're immensely helpful.
