I'm going to be using Kubuntu as soon as I get a secondary HD and format the one in my Compaq now. I still want a Mac and would rather spend a few extra bucks on a Mac than get vista (cheap ripoff of Mac's OS X). PLus, if you watch the apple keynotes on their site. their stuff is cheaper than the majority of the compitetion (SP?) when set up with the same numbers.

I'm really digging the Time Machine and Dashboard features.

the Macbook i want is $1,599. Yeah I can do better than that if I go get another brand of notebook. The iMac I want, built how I want it:

1GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x512
160GB Serial ATA drive
ATI Radeon X1600/128MB VRAM
SuperDrive 8x (DVD+R DL/DVD+RW/CD-RW)
Keyboard & Mighty Mouse + Mac OS X - U.S. English
Accessory kit
17-inch widescreen LCD
1.83GHz Intel Core Duo
AirPort Extreme
Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR

is only $1,399 the computer i got now i paid about $1,200 for and it's garbage.

I do see your point and i'm not trying to start an arguement or defend Apple's prices (which I will say are a little higher than most), but I'd just rather have a Mac, just as some would tell you intels suck or gateways are "the best ever". Just a matter of preference. I do appreciate you looking out for my wallet tho.
