Apple By most counts, they're a hit. But they were intended to woo new users to the fold, yet Mac market share has only budged -- lower, says BusinessWeek.

What's all this 50% cheaper talk? Mac isn't aiming at the budget market. Go to dell.com and configure a system. Then go over to apple.com and configure a similar system. The price difference won't be huge.

Of course if you want to run Linux on your Dell you'll get loads of headaches like which distro, and you'll be googling about and find yourself asking "Does it work on Linux?" alot. If you get a Mac, you may have to spend maybe a hundred or so extra euro but you'll save on the panadol and you'll have a prettier computer.

Everyone to their own, but Mac aren't gonna go under anytime soon and they don't cost 2 or 3 times more than similar x86 computers.
