Yet another company decides to get into the Mac cloning game

Psystar has had a rather lackluster showing in its attempt to sell unauthorized Mac clonesˇXbesides Apple suing the pants off the company, Psystar has also filed for bankruptcy after just a year in existence. Now, a new company in Los Angeles hopes to somehow escape the wrath of Apple Legal byˇXget thisˇXopening a brick and mortar retail store. Quo Computer is set to open for business next Monday, June 1.

“It’s exciting. We are trying to stay as close to Apple as we can with our products,” Rashantha De Silva, Quo founder, told CNET. “We are trying to mimic things as much as we can. I’m hoping that Apple sees the value in what we are doing.”

Here in Orbiting HQ, we’re approximately 100 percent certain Apple will not see the value in a company that has the stated purpose of mimicking Apple’s hardware as closely as possible. There’s a word for trying to duplicate another company’s products as closely as possible and then trying to sell them: rip-off.
