OSNews reports Apple is asking for a permanent injunction against Psystar. The site investigated some of the court filings and found that Psystar isn't doing too well. The company expected to sell 70,000 systems this year, but an economist hired by Apple to go over Psystar's incomplete financial records estimates the company sold only 768 machines between April 2008 and mid-August 2009.
In the conservative model, Psystar would sell 70000 machines in 2009, 470000 in 2010, and 1.45 million in 2011. The aggressive model would have them sell 130000 machines in 2009, 1.87 million in 2010, and 12 million in 2011. Pretty... Interesting. And confident. Overly.
More painful are what Apple claims are the real sales figures. Apple hired an economist to go over Psystar's (incomplete) financial records, and he claims that Psystar sold only 768 machines between April 2008 and mid-August 2009. "Psystar has not challenged my analysis of its financial records," the economist said.
So, this is the company that Apple is so afraid of. A company that sold only 768 machines in over a year. In roughly the same timespan (Apple's 2009 fiscal year which ended September 30) Apple sold 768 machines every 40 minutes.
