It IS expensive. No Mac user will deny it. But you know, a computer is not just about having 2.8GHz or 3.0GHz. What cannot be put in figures on that sheet is the robustness of the computer, the quality of the components that are not going to crash when it's a bit hot in your room, the fact that you're not going to have a graphics card that is not-so compatible with your southbridge resulting in crashes every day,... I wish there were norms for these aspects so that PC manufacturers would have an incentive to build better computers, not the ones with the highest CPU speed not caring about stability.My first PC was a IBM XT 4.7MHz in the eighties, I had a MacBook Pro 2 years ago for my job and I just love it. It's damn expensive but half of that difference goes to quality. The other half goes to Steve for being the only one making better quality products.
