But, my friend... This is the war to end all wars!

They could use AMDs!! That would slow things down a bit, though. Nonetheless, it would lower the price. I couldn't recommend an AMD for a laptop, though.

They can't lower the graphics anymore. Smaller HDDs don't make sense.
I suppose they could offer options like taking out the webcam and/or bluetooth and wireless. But Apple did work to standardize those things, didn't they?

Dunno, there really isn't much they can do except lower the prices altogether.

OH! They can advertise using adware and crapware! (They could, but I would hope not lol)




I'm just going to say I don't understand that. I don't see it as taking any side. I can't possibly; I just don't understand it lol

Layman's terms, please?

What's the right man's "rich man" computer, then? His own multi-thousand dollar custom build? If so, then I get it
less cash on advertising and pass savings onto the consumer

Man, you guys ought to storm into Apple's HQ, select and demand that some people be fired, and tell em your great plans.

Less cash on advertising + less on the price tag just isn't apple, though...

hmmm always a mac bashing fest, speaking of them i happen to be on one right now! its a Dual processor G5 2 64bit Power PC 970s at 2ghz it runs very nicely and i really enjoy the interface. anyways apple is always gonna be overpriced and will always have the mindless loyal following get over it everyone.

What? That's what you've been talking about all along? lol

I thought it has been long decided and agreed upon that Macs are not gaming machines. There's literally zero (0) point in comparing Macs to gaming computers, the main reason being that games aren't ported to OSX. I guess you could argue "Just use Bootcamp" and whatnot... But really Macs aren't geared toward the gaming market whatsoever, so I don't see any point in comparing them to gaming PCs.

Expect to see another one of my lovely comparisons very soon. I'm interested to see what the price difference is. I will compare an iMac (probably the 2nd model up), and then a MacBook Pro.

Comparing a MacPro probably won't work out since it uses server hardware and all.

That's about it for Apple's "high-end," though. We'll see tomorrow... Or possibly friday; I'm going to be busy the next couple days. But that doesn't mean to not be expecting me; procrastination is my middle name

Ok, now I'm just talking out of my ass... I get like this when it's late.



Ok, then let's take the average price deltas among each comparison. I'll do this as well when I have the time. I'm very interested to actually see the numbers. I find it fascinating that claims of "price this, price that" about Mac vs PC has been thrown around for AGES, yet it is only the past couple of days that anyone has actually done any point-to-point, apples-to-apples comparisons.
If they really want to start getting their market share up there with companies like HP and Dell then they are going to need to reduce their profit margins.
