    Maybe they waited to sue Psytar so when the closing arguments come around there will be some money to take away.

    Cool
    it is possible that Apple wanted to see if Psystar can offer an update to OS X.

    You mean if Psystar could get 10.5.4 working on their machines?

    That is very possible. They were waiting for some reason.

    I just read that not only are they suing them - they demand all the sold clones be returned.

    Maybe they didn't have the $350 fee...

    Yeah, I wonder what did take them so long.

    I'm assuming they have a reason for waiting, but we can only guess as to what that is.

    My guesses are either:

    A. They wanted to concentrate on getting all the legalities nailed out with the iPhone, MobileMe, etc. etc. And now they are shifting resources to deal with Psystar.

    B. They waited for Psystar to ship enough units so that demanding a recall would be guaranteed to bankrupt them.

    They knew about psystar all along, the day after 10.5.4 was released psystar already had it on their new systems and were offering all there customers a free update of it. Thats when Apple filed the complaint about them.
