Actually to buy a Mac is quite affordable. Computers used to cost much more. How bout a Mac with monitor for 10,000 bucks. Oh and buy the way, it couldnt do even a tiny bit of what the new ones are cabable of. I myself am waiting til next year to pick up a dual dual core model after a couple of revisions come out after it. How much power do we really need anyway.
be that as it is, an amazing $3000 computer still costs about $3000 more than I have...

yea, I am a little skeptical. I am one of those, "biger is better" "more is better" type guys. Seeing as only the top line model has dual processors, I am not convinced this was a smart move. I see the stats below, but I don't hardly ever trust stats that a company with a vested interest publishes.
GIVE US A DUAL PROCESSOR, DUAL CORE, MID LEVEL MODEL! :woohoo: (for crying out loud)
