So why doesn't Psystar just sell the hardware and let users buy copies of OSX to install on their own?

because people can already do that on their own. But if I remember correctly they can't even sell the device that unlocks OSX to be installed on non apple systems.

But it's a pain vetting hardware compatibilities with OSX.  Very few notebooks will have full functionality when you make a Hackintosh, and it's a pain figuring out what desktop hardware will work well, since there isn't much interest in that.  But Psystar picking out hardware and selling a fully-built desktop (Just Add Disc!) must have some kind of market. . .

There are huge comprehensive lists of what is and is not compatible.

I'd buy nice, sleek, well designed hardware for a 10% markup over market if it was well designed, solidly constructed, and easily upgraded (IE: everything a real MAC is, plus upgradable)
