mac's are useless for money since you can get something 2x faster for half the price.
the 8204 is probably up there, does the MAC even have ABG wireless and a card reader? i dont see it in the tech specs on appls website.
OR if you dont mind smaller you can go with the W3J you can upgrade it to 2GB for not too much. and its no where near the rip off price of the mac
Because he wanted something with a "semi-decent video card." Therefore, he might not necessarily need an x1600, or might not be willing to pay the premium that it comes with.
The Acer 8204 is a viable option, and does outperform the Macbook, but it is a little more expensive, a good bit larger, and has a dimmer screen. For once, a mac is actually a decent deal.
