im getting to upgrade to the core 2 duo model with the 1 gig ram and dual layer combo drive.... all i have to pay is 100 dollars. Apple messed up and is letting me return my notebook refunding the money (but i have to pay a restocking fee) and then i can get the new one at the student price and just transfer my apple care. Pretty exciting.

Besides which, now all the new ones that use Core or Core2 can run Windows XP natively.

Here is a workstation (some might even call it a server) about three times as cheap as an extremely comparable Mac Pro:

Windows XP Pro - $139.99

The Mac I put together was $4,693.00 before shipping while this PC I put together on Newegg was only $1674.14. I tried my very best to stay with equal performance, so I configured the Mac first and then got some parts off of Newegg. The Mac I built was here (I don't know if the config is viewable from other PCs because of cookies, but it will be easy to configure as there are only two to four options in each of the categories):
http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...cUAlXY5/2.?p=0
A screenshot of the config and the price is here:

I just wanted to point out that Macs are inferior because of both their OS and hardware. I installed OS X on a spare HDD of mine multiple times, everything worked flawlessly each time, but I ended up removing it even though it ran so much faster than on a regular Mac (I ran some benchmarks on XBench and scored very high on some tests with only a Sempron 3400+ and 768MB of memory. I scored over 120 on a few and the average was around 70. A dual PPC G% 2.5GHz was supposed to score 100.). On the other hand, I loaded Ubuntu PPC on a Mac and it was just horrible because it was so slow. Then I tried Ubuntu x86 on an Intel Mac and it was a little better, but my old (old, old, old) PI MMX 200MHz 63MB SIMM RAM could load Linux faster than the new Mac. Geez. Just my input as to why I think no one should consider a Mac. Unless they will be using OS X on a build of their own.
