We're just throwing blind assertions at each other, but since I don't want to go PC shopping just to pursue the argument, let's keep it theoretical. Which do you suppose is a harder task: a) for you to show me a third-the-price PC that's truly an apples-to-apples comparison with some given Mac; or b) for me to find a PC and configure it show it's actually worthy of being compared to some given Mac as an equal? Tough jobs both, but I think my task would be easier. If nothing else, I have the reductive case: dual-boot a Mac.
