EFi-X USA To Begin Shipping OS X-Friendly Computers – That’s EFi-X USA. Not to be confused with EFi-X, which has nothing to do with the new doppleganger. Except that they’ll offer the EFi-X dongle for sale with their new, OS X ready PCs, which are high-end, powerful computers. They won’t actually be installing OS X, but they’ll probably still end up in court.
