It shows that imac aren't "double the price", hence the title "clear things up"

What are you you trying to compare exactly

Its a bit like comparing a 1600cc Ford with a 1600cc Audi. It depends at the end of the day which car you are happy driving.

I don't see the point of making a totally separate thread just to prove a point, when you could have just posted that in the same thread.

It doesn't make any sense because you don't even reference, or link to the thread you were responding to. >_>"

I probably wouldn't have even know what thread you were responding to if I hadn't read it before I read this thread.

Both are very nice computers I'd happily own.

However, by suggesting the iMac is better value than the Dell, you really are preaching to the choir.
