Original OSNews Interviews The news that Apple is going to switch to Intel processors shook up the computing world. Many users and developers were eager to publish their opinions on the switch. However, one group of people were totally neglected during all this: resellers. Today, we feature an interview with Wim Schermer, first Dutchman to own a Mac (in 1984), and co-founder of one of the biggest Apple retail stores in The Netherlands, MacSupport. We discuss the switch to Intel, and much more.

"you put a very high price tag on the value of bundled software, "

No, only the price to an equivilent version of software to run on Windows. Windows equivilents for iDVD, iMovie, iPhoto and Garageband cost between $200 - $250. If you factor this in, and then match Windows XP Professional (not consumer) against OS X Tiger, then the Mac usually comes out about $50 - $100 less than a comperably equipped PC.
