Other then their ridiculous central processing configurations their hardware setups are mediocre compared to what a PC can do, especially for the price.

Notice how Starbucks is high on that list. Another overpriced, but cool product to use.

There is nothing cooler than sipping on your $8 coffee at Starbucks while using iPhoto on your $3000 MacBook Air.

(Reminds me of Family Guy Episode)
My hat is off to that one.

So you were using an Intel CPU, and running windows. Oh, that is what we call a PC then. More specifically, an overpriced PC with a limited hardware set.

The overpricing has come down a bit as they've gained a slight bit of market share (like 3%). Here's a current comparison of gaming on an Apple laptop vs. PC:

MacBook Pro
Screen: 17-inch glossy 1920x1200 res.
Video: 8600M 512mb NVidia
CPU: 2.6Ghz Core 2 Duo
Ram: 4GB 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
HD: 200GB 7200rpm SATA
OS: MacOSx, but wait, we'll need Windows for most new games....$223 (newegg)
$3,722

Dell XPS M1730
Screen: 17-inch glossy 1920x1200 res.
Video: 8700M 512mb NVidia
CPU: 2.6Ghz Core 2 Duo
Ram: 4GB 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
HD: 160GB 7200rpm SATA
OS: Windows Home Premium
$2,959

Macbook Pro:
Pros: The Macbook has 40Gb more hard drive, and the MacOS (is that a Pro?).
Cons: $800 more than the Dell, much more limited hardware options.

Dell XPS:

Pros: $800 less. Faster, better video card. Many more hardware options. Could've gone with a X9000 Core 2 Extreme, up to 3.4Ghz, could've gone with SLI 8700M video cards, could've gone with SLI 8800M GTXs. Could've gotten raid 2x200GB hard drive setup, or a 64GB solid state drive.
Cons: Um, its not elitist, or white and shiny? Doesn't have ability to run MacOSX I guess. Ok, well it can, if you really want.

Ever been to Boulder, CO? Town is full of elitist yuppies. It is the perfect example of Apple's target market. I happened to be walking by a Starbucks, looked in the window, saw three guys sitting next to each other (didn't seem to know each other), all sipping their coffee at the same time, all have macbook laptops.
