This may be stupid but my grandmother seems to think that you can get a great computer for $600 to $800 for college. Now i'm trying to tell her that it just isn't possible without putting some money into it. She also thinks that my 3.5 year old Dell laptop would be more than enough for college. Now in my eyes she is completely crazy and wrong about this topic. I'm asking because she thinks that a Macbook price is insane for a stock low end model which is pretty cheap. What is the average price for computers now both Apple and Windows? Thanks.
