Microsoft After the more-or-less positively received "You find it, you keep it" television advertisements, it seems as if Microsoft is quickly falling back to its previous mistakes of relying on easily countered FUD-like tactics. We already discussed the blog post regarding Linux on netbooks, which was easily countered on virtually every point made. However, it gets even worse: Microsoft has ordered a study detailing what the company calls the hidden "Apple tax" that you are supposedly paying if you go Apple. Now, I'm the first to state that Apple simply doesn't provide the optimal pricing for everyone, but this Microsoft sponsored study is so completely and utterly ridiculous it makes me wonder just who on earth would look at it and go "Yeah, this looks pretty convincing!"

idiots write articles.
Look at this
"At the high end, the gap is particularly wide. A Mac Pro fetches $2,500 while a comparable HP d5100t goes for only $1,050. The Mac has a 2.66GHz quad core Xeon, and the HP a quad core Core 2, but the HP has one-third more memory, and a bigger drive."

Is Xeon comparable to core2 or is FBDIMM comparable to non buffered non ECC RAMs or to the quality of Apple Fans and Motherboard with intel 5000 chipset or ....

I cannot believe osnews are posting for those idiots.
sorry for my language.
