Update: The EFi-X development team contacted Engadget to report that they have nothing to do with "EFi-X USA" and they do not approve of this effort to sell Mac OS X-compatible machines. Classy!
Update #2 (6 p.m. ET): EFi-X has let Engadget know that it is shutting down EFi-X USA's plans to sell the Millennium machine, stating it refuses to support systems that would directly compete with any brand.
Engadget has reported that EFi-X USA is among the latest companies to announce that they will sell OS X capable machines targeted at high-end users. EFi-X is already known for selling a dongle, shown at right, that allows certain Intel machines to run OS X.
According to the Engadget post, the EFi-X Millennium 4 will contain the following:
- An overclocked 3.8GHz Core 2 Quad
- 4GB of RAM
- A GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card in an Antec P180 case
- The dongle that fools your machine into installing OS X
This announcement comes days after Argentina-based OpeniMac announced that it would begin selling Mac clones. Of course, there is still that small case with Psystar still going on.
