I don't understand the misinformation that's out there that Mac is more
expensive than a PC.  Mac mini's are now in the same range as the
cheaper-range Dells, and ibooks are some of the cheapest laptops out
there, even compared to current Wintel laptops.  If price is reasoning
for not getting a Mac, it should no longer be a reason.
