@Lambda
I do, and I'm very happy with their products ;)

But seriously, tell me what other vendors come even close to Apple's notebooks in terms of design and features per cubic inch?

I don't use my computers as a decoration piece. Apple's features per square inch are no different than any other PC notebook.

@Lambda

But per cubic inch they are.. Sigh..

But whatever. My reasons for using a Mac don't have anything to do with their alleged decorative quality. I find it quite condescending from you to suggest so.

By the way: there are as many ways to prove that Macs are cheaper as there are ways to prove they are more expensive than comparatively spec'd PC's. I'm not even going in to this, because my original point was that Apple doesn't charge a so called hardware tax.

The only figure that matters in this debate is if Apple makes absurdly high margins on their hardware they obviously charge a "hardware tax", well they don't. (though they make good money).

I agree that Apple hardware might be somewhat more expensive (they don't [want to] compete on the low end) , but I dare you to find me a PC notebook with similar specs and price as the new MBP's.

I always liked my old Thinkpad 380ed that lives under the bed...especially the trackpointer. But last time I checked Thinkpad prices, they were outrageous.
