    The new iMac doesn't have LED backlight like his chart shows.

    It does not have LED backlight and the Dell XPS comes with a quadcore. Does the iMacs still only have a 1.3 megapixel cam?

    Yes, still "only" 1.3 MP, just like the HP machine.

    (Of course, the usual webcam broadcast size of 320x240 is only 0.076 megapixels anyway, while a 1024x768 emailable snapshot is 0.79 MP. So even the Mac and HP are overkill at "only" 1.3 MP, while the Dell's 2.0 MP is largely useless.)

    Unless you make minimum wage, any Apple computer is far better priced than the PCs.

    After you measure up all the hours you spend trying to figure out the crap on PCs, get things workings, do all the fooling around with virus protection, etc., you've spent weeks of your life you just won't waste on a Mac. Time is life. PC kills.
