I have a personal problem with the way mac products are priced, not so much the way Apple prices are, but the vendors, like ATI..

Why for example does an ATI 8500 AGP for the PC come with 128MB DDR and cost as little as $129, while the Mac version has only 64MB and cost as much as double?

I sent this same question to ATI, and I look forward to their response.

there.....I feel better now.

B/C these people know we are a minority and want to make money off of us. It' supply/demand with a little twist. WE SHALL REBEL!
