In a dream... lolwhat :haha:Hard to believe but I figured out how the prices work on the Macs in a dream. Weird I know.
First off.....The panels. Mac uses IPS panels in their PC's. Those are pretty pricey panels. That alone would make the price JUMP.
Secondly.....the designs of the macs do not come cheap. Take the iMac for example ( the new ones ) with the unibody frames. They may be aluminum but the carving of the frames must be a little pricey as well.
Now this is mostly about the iMacs.....still think that they need to price down the Mini's a bit ( $499 would be acceptable ) and the laptops as well ( I do not know if they use IPS on a laptop or not ).
Hmmk... well if you keep an open spirit like that if you ever got one, after a week or so you will be happy to have made the change. At least in theoryDamn you Midget!!! You got me wanting an iMac 21.5!!!!! You will BURN for this!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
