A pretty interesting article at Linux Insider which presents a good comparison between Macs and Dell PCs at various market levels. When you equip (if you can) the Dells like the Apples the Macs always come up cheaper; desktop, server, laptop. Cheaper, cheaper, cheaper. Obviously, if you don’t need any of that you can save money with the PC but as soon as you need it, Macs are a better deal and that’s not even considering the ease of use and “lack” of viruses, malware, trojans, etc. End of commercial.
