OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

RE[3]: Depends on the price

Besides higher taxes, I think the mean difference is Apple. As far as I understand Apple charges the same prices in Euro's as they do in Dollars. Since the Euro is worth a lot more then a dollar (about 1.4 dollars for 1 euro) this amounts to quite a difference.

If the apple product costs 1800 dollars is should cost 1300 euro not 1800 euro... ;)
