Psystar is still trying to convince us that despite heavy criticism that their Mac OS X clone dubbed Open Computer is for real. They have now turned to the video medium to spread the word about $399.99 Mac hardware.

The video published on their site (apparently made with an Open Computer) shows the Open Computer running Windows XP, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X.
As it is supposedly not straight forward to install OS X onto an Open Computer, Psystar pre-installs OS X when you order it with an Open Computer. A pre-installed Open Computer starts at $554.99.
You can see the video on the Psystar site (Quicktime) or on Youtube, where MacRumors uploaded it.

Hoax or not, Psystar looks more and more real, but I would still wait until a trusted Mac site finally gets their hands on an Open Computer and publishes a hands-on review. If I was Psystar I would have already sent out test systems to a couple of Apple news sites and cut the crap.
