I wouldn't pay more than 150 bucks for that apple thing.

today for 999, i would rather go for an overclocked watercooled 16G ram i7 tower at over 4Ghz than this baby toy.

Agree for windows 8 thought, it's a horror.
I'm not a big Apple fan either, but they did lower their high prices on some laptops since the article I posted was written. http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE91C0V320130213?irpc=932

After check, the same config i mentioned before is at 850, so a notable reduction in price indeed, althought still 700 bucks too high for my taste :)

btw sorry if i appeared a bit brusque, link to a pro comparison is appreciated, recent reuters source for anything as well, i just always tend to jump a bit when i hear apple prices, reductions or not :)
Don't worry, I hear about Apple from my son, who is very much an open-source advocate.
