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.

"Apple includes bundled software"

My Sony Vaio desktop also included Windows XP and plenty of commercial software (I didn't care for any of it), yet it was no more expensive than an equivalent PC sold without OS.

Ergo: that argument doesn't stand.

How does it not stand? I was saying that the Mac doesn't cost more than an equivalent PC.

Because when you Mac users say that, you put a very high price tag on the value of bundled software, something that PC users never do (I know, Mac software is better, but its cost to Apple isn't higher than the cost of equivalent software to Dell or Sony)
