StikyPad writes: CNET has news that Mac clone maker Psystar is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company apparently has over $250,000US in debt, and states that it cannot turn a profit in the current economy. According to Cnet, "The Chapter 11 filing will temporarily suspend Apple's copyright infringement suit against Psystar, which is currently before the U.S. District Court of Northern California. But once the bankruptcy protection is sorted out, the copyright case will resume." Meanwhile PC Mag reports that, on the other side of the Atlantic two new clone companies are just getting started. Like PsyStar, FreedomPC and RussianMac promise to deliver PCs with the OS X preloaded. Unique to RussianMac is the MiniBook. The MiniBook is "guaranteed to 'correct work,' although the company notes that features like multitouch won't work."
