First Psystar video surfaces

Gizmodo brings us the first video of a Psystar Open Computer in the wild. Reader Patrick (Whiskeyfrown) made a video showing the machine (including the connections in the back to the monitor to show that it's legit). It boots up into a Windows-looking bios then into Mac OS 10.5.2.

According to Patrick it runs "pretty damn fast" but Software Update won't recognize it so you won't be able to patch. System Profiler thinks that it's a Mac Pro. Listen to the fan, it sounds like a 747 taking off.

Don't bother clicking the play button above I can't embed the video, so it's just  screen grab. Jump over to Gizmodo to check it out. They're promising more pics soon.

In related news: Psystar called me today to tell me that the default white case is backordered 10 days, so I switched to black which is in stock. They told me that mine would ship this week, hopefully "in a couple of days."
