    Is that also factoring the unit cost, or just maintenance costs?? I know more then a few systems that have only needed an hour or three maintenance over the past year or two.

    I worked on a woman's home system over a year ago, and just recently had to work on it again... Total amount of time for the latest repair... 2 hours, which is $150 if you must know :D. That should drive those numbers way down... :D

    Non-productive down time must have killed the peecee numbers :D... I hope that they didn't use the same life-span terms, since everyone knows that Mac's have a longer usable life-span. Upgrades must have also done a number to the peecee's... just think about the cost of going from win2k to xp *shudder*.

    It's the same with most things in life. You pay an initial higher cost, and get your moneys worth through quality and reliability.

    That that, whoever says macs are more expensive :D
