Well spoken LMAO!, I agree.
Only $180. off for a refurbished Mac which still costs $1018. I recently purchased an ASUS laptop with about the same capabilities (I5, 2.4g, 15.6 inch screen and CD/DVD drive) for $618 total (new) with Windows 7 Professional x64 and got 3 yr warranty and 2yr accident warranty included. I am happy with the ASUS which seems to me a much better value judgment.
I can use either but choose pcs because of the significant price difference and Mac hardware is proprietary which limits replacement parts.
