Macs are more expensive than PC's but....

To make it easy for the people who say macs are too expensive think of it this way. There is no low end mac. The low end mac is the equivalent to a relatively higher end pc. No macs don't come with a semi decent graphics card, firewire, cd burner or dvd burner (in the case of the imac a monitor) ethernet etc. You put all of that into a pc and it costs more than an emachine. The mac might be a little more, but its not double the cost. And the laptops are comparatively priced. Once the g5 comes out you will see that that is possibly the LOWEST priced high end pc around. It's competition is really workstations that cost 4000 dollars.
Now if you want to build your own pc you'll get it for much cheaper. and if all you want is an emachine with no frills then I'll grant you the pc is much cheaper.
