Thread: price of non-macs
07-24-2005, 11:16 AM #1catchawaveGuestprice of non-macs
My friend's computer just died and she had to get another one. I think she ended up getting a laptop but I'm not sure.
She knows I'm getting a new laptop also. She really doesn't listen to what I tell her - LOL. But she knows I use Macs. She never says anything about them one way or the other.
She just emailed me this morning and said I should one like hers because it would only cost 500.00
I know it's not a Mac.
None of my friends have Macs --
How can PC'ers get these computers so cheap? I have no intentions whatsoever to switching over. I'm getting an ibook (waiting to see if they uprade next week).
But I'm just curious as to what the differences are to make that big of a difference in price???

As well as brand name. Pc components are truly mass-produced and the more you make of something the cheaper it will be.
Love my pc and love my mac. :yinyang:

A $500 laptop probably has no wireless built in and it probably does not come with any software. I, personally, would get something like this:
By the time you added the equivalent of iLife for a PC, upgraded Win Xp Home to XP Pro, etc. the PC laptop would be close in price to the iBook.
