See that whizz kid in the paper today?  Not yet 6 but designing his own computers (Windows. based, of course ) and just passed Microsoft exam.  Handy to have him live locally....he could repair my computer for a bag of sweets

But windows computers really are soooooooooooo much cheaper.  Two good computers, 3 medium quality ones for the cost of an apple mac.  And haggling brings even better value.  No haggling with Apple products.  I have purchased quality Sony laptops for past 4 years.  They look as good as macs, exude quality and have far greater specs.  Had I purchased a Mac 3 years ago it's specs would now be surpassed by even the cheapest windows brands 

price is an essential factor in any purchase and not to be belittled.  Always walk out after a purchase with excellent savings and free, haggled for, goodies.  Good feeling .
