I know nothing at all about pricing Dell products, but out of curiosity, I went to the Dell store yesterday, and did some comparison shopping. This is what I ended up with.<br><br>I looked at the Dell Precision M 70 (the other Precision model has a 14" monitor). I left the processor at default (Pentium M 740 running at 1.73 GHz), which sounds like much worse than the dual core Intel chip running at 1.83 GHz that the upper-end MacBook has. I upgraded the MacBook and Precision HDs to 100 GB 7200 RPM each. I added Bluetooth to the Precision. The only other difference is that the Precision comes with a modem whereas the MacBook does not. <br><br>Prices? The MacBook comes to 2599. The Precision comes to 2439 (with a special "business" rebate of 425; without that rebate, the price comes to 2864). <br><br>For $160, I'll take OS X any day.<br><br>Anyway, is that a fair comparison?<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.
