In the News "In his public appearances, Bill Gates often appears to be so heavily sedated that the the private, peevish Bill we know and love from his internal emails rarely erupts. So it's with some relief we learn that normal service has been resumed, after Newsweek magazine's Steven Levy, an Apple acolyte, solicited chairman Bill's opinion of its latest TV advertising campaign, 'I'm a Mac - I'm a PC'." The Guardian is also hosting a piece on the 'Get a Mac' campaign.

The one with Vista Home Basic is 359 and with Home Premium with Aero is 479

And they are incredibly crippled machines, even when you compare them to a Mac Mini. And they are only using Vista Home Basic, the lowest rung on the tier and without all the "goodies". No monitor, and not even a CD RW drive.

Yeah... when I configured a machine that I'd actually be willing to use (17" monitor, 2GB ram, Vista Home Premium), the price was more like $809.
