The Psystar shipping box isn't very impressive.
The Psystar is shipped in two styrofoam frames inside a larger box with a metric ass-load of peanuts.
Inside the large shipping box is a anti-static bag with the accessories: software, cables and manuals.
I ordered the black case (the white model was backordered). It comes with plastic film on the front to protect against scratching.
The Psystar case is an Asus TM-210 (MicroATX) which retails for about US$55 from NewEgg.com
Time to pick it up off the floor :)
I couldn't stand the clear anti-scratch film for another minute. So I peeled it all off. I immediately second-guessed myself and saved the film.
The Psystar's front access panel features two USB ports, microphone and headphone jacks. The door is reasonably sturdy.

Ah, the familiar Apple logo. Time to breathe a sigh of relief.
Setting up a Mac OS X account looks familiar - and it is.
