I read today that Apple's profits are down for the quarter. As a UK-based PC user - hoping one day (soon?) to buy my first Mac, the profit warning is no surprise. It costs a small fortune to buy the G4 Quicksilver range - £1350 is the cheapest box I've seen and the monitor adds another few hundred quid on top. Yes, the I-Mac is cheaper but I think the Quicksilvers are more future-proof. Any chance Apple will cut their prices before MacWorld?<br><br>

Well, the upfront cost of a Mac may be looking more expensive than PC's, but overall satisfaction is very high and overall ROI is very low.<br><br>You also don't necessarily have to buy an Apple monitor. There's Sony, Lacie, ViewSonic, etc which can be had for $200-400.<br><br>There maybe a price cut and there may not be. No idea. Lots of rumours flying around about new Power Macs at MWNY 2002 in July and such. You can always find an older Power Mac (like the 733 MHz ones) at cheaper rates.<br><br>Since it's so near expo time, I would suggest you wait till the expo tramples us and leaves to make a decision.<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile. Your a$$ will be laminated.
