After seriously considering a mac, based on two things, an interest in one of their propriatary programs, AND rumors that Apple was going to start pricing more reasonably, I have decided to go P.C. The new MacBook Pro only has 512mb memory a 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo, a 6 Cell Lithium Ion battery and a 1 year warranty. Apple wants $2000.00 for these base specs. I went to Compaq.com and customized a 14" Compaq Intel Core Duo and selected the upgrades of a 2.0GHz Core Duo, 2 GB memory, Wireless w/Built in Blue Tooth, A 12 Cell Lithium-ion battery and an additional 2 years added onto the 1 year warranty and the total came to $2,085.99. People, these specs can't be debated! What's a better use of my $2000.00? For $86.00 more, one gets SO....much more. There is no question, Compaq will be getting my Core Duo $$$$. Any thoughts?
