Macs are so full of themselves...they have the most expensive laptops on the market...if youre on a budget...get a compaq at best buy with a celeron at a $500 rebate with a free printer... what do you use your Mac for? I'd really like to know.
Well, just for few examples, I use Mac Power G4 at work for IT infrastructure. My iMacG3 for building database program. It is a little slow, but I dig it for extrac cash and enjoy my free time. Mac has way better security system and structure than Window, BTW. Panther OSX is by far better than both WinXP home and Pro, not by much however when comparing to XP Pro. I am hardly into gaming. When I am, I usually just hack into the game and modify a heck out of it rather than spending time punching mouse or else.
I agree with you for Compag is being cheap. Well, AW is not that cheap unfortunately. And you are comparing AW pc base to Mac not other less expensive brandname.
My main point here is to let the girl have what she wants, not what you guys think she should have. That why I said how she would use it for and how the IT structure within the company looks like. Just my two cents.
