What are you talking about? The Mac Pro has PCI Express, not plain old PCI.

You can even adjust the PCI Express bandwidth on your system to meet your specific needs. What’s more, the double-wide, 16-lane PCI Express graphics slot brings an end to sacrificing a slot in favor of better graphics.

1 His post does not state that the card is pci express
2 that in itself (having three pcie x16 slots right next ot each other) is a flaw,
anything that you could put in there that can use a pcie on x16 needs more space for cooling than is avalible, therefore a potental overheat or just a waste

you know what, you find me ONE mac that is not overpriced (dont forget your links)
ok. Lowend macbook, $1099, and $999 if you are a student.
http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...FoMbLsD/4.?p=0
Specs:
13.3' Widescreen
2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
1GB DDR2 667 memory
80GB 5400 rpm hard drive1
Combo drive

You can config Dell's Inspiron to the same specs and upgrade to Vista Home Premium, and it comes to $1053.
http://configure.us.dell.com/dellsto...=DNCWEA1&s=dhs
What you get with the Macbook you don't with the Dell:
A Remote
iSignt Camera (built in webcam)
Sleek look
Actually useful bundled software.
More portability.

What you get with the Dell:
A better video card(x1400 vs. Macbook's GMA 950)
15.4' screen (maybe a plus of a negative depending on what you want)
If you want something smaller, you could try for a 14.1 screen,but if you want smaller than that, you have to configure an XPS and thats way more than a Macbook, similarly configured.

I wouldn't exactly call this paying "thousands more", in fact, I'd say you get an equal value with the Macbook.
