I'm not sure how you can make that statement. I've
been shopping for these things a lot and I found that
unless you're looking at a no-name laptop the prices
of the Macs weren't all that out of line.  Here's what
I saw:




The Sony's got more ram (I think a gig stick costs
about $150 these days) and the Apple's got a faster
processor but "twice" as expensive?  I found similar
prices with most of the major brands like Toshiba,
Lenovo(IBM) and Dell.

I did decide to go with a Toshiba myself but only
because I've already got machines that run all the Mac
apps I have and the added cost of XP did make the
Macbook more expensive for a reason I could't justify.
