Agreed. There's also insanelymac.whatever -same story.
To briefly comment: While I really like Apple and OSX, very much for
it's ease of out-of-the-box integration, I find their hardware prices
overrated, so I consider shopping ordinary PC hardware and install a
shopped OSX (not the 'free open' hacked version) using boot123, which is
an EFI bios workaround.
Ideally, I'll wan't a rack mounted studio computer, which Apple doesn't
sell, except for the expensive Xserve. Maybe I can mount an Apple floor
stander laying down, but that's a pretty large and expensive solution.
For my home studio use, I do find a Macbook with an external sudio
harddrive to be an interesting alternative, but again, the prices..
