…["the price":http://www.linuxinsider.com/story/36120.html]. It’s a real Apples-to-apples comparison between comparable Dell (sorry, Jaime) and Apple offerings, based solely on price. (Can you spot the one flawed point?)
Some “feedback”:http://www.linuxinsider.com/perl/board/mboard.pl?board=lnitalkback&thread=918&id=922&display=1 on the article pointed out one flaw in his reasoning, something I spotted but couldn’t articulate to myself. He says that Dell offers “just a monitor” but that Apple offers some kind of wonder-display. The Apple displays are great, but the Dell 20″ really is both cheaper and more versatile, feature-wise. The flaw in the flaw? Dell doesn’t offer 23″ or 30″ models at all, and someone looking to do HD cinema work would need that 30″ to display a full frame.
Oh, and there’s the other argument, that one could buy a complete computer from Dell for $500, while the cheapest eMac would cost $800. I could also buy a “C64 for $10″:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=62054&item=8126145867&rd=1, but that doesn’t mean it’s useful for anything.
