Well, I personally prefer the following.

- Mac OS 10.5.
- Solid and sturdy construction.
- Excellent support.
- LED backlit screen.
- Backlit keyboard.
- MagSafe power cord.

Yeah, other than the fancy keyboard, fancy power cord, fancy screen, solid construction, and the operating system, nothing. If you're that interested Atomic Rooster, try going through these links.

Yeah, but the people aiming to purchase an Apple laptop are very different from the people looking at a PC based laptop. Apple has to be doing something right because they are increasing in sales a little every year. What may be expensive to you is different to somebody else. You're comparing apples to oranges. Once people move to a Mac, they don't usually go back to Windows. You guys are pretty much just focusing everything on price and not on performance. Compare the two operating systems. I guarantee Leopard will come out on top every time.

I thought mac was more expensive because it only has 6% of the market. but yeah i guess it could be because of 'solid construction'

Solid construction is the reason I paid $250 for my case. Build quality is one of the things I appreciate, and it's one thing that Apple doesn't skimp on with their machines.

LOL! I paid nearly $200 less for a case that is just as solidly built as any on the market.

I don't agree with you, but if that's your opinion that's fine.

Anyway, Apple's line of computers are good computers. As previously said, they aren't aimed at the majority of the market. I wouldn't mind running the Mac OS if they supported installation on hardware other than their own.

I really like the case setup in the Mac Pro. It looks like everything is in it's own chamber for cooling.
