    Every time I have my friends over they can't wait to try out my iMac. For my birthday party in November we spent about an hour and a half playing with photobooth and the mirror effects. All my friends think that Macs are the coolest thing in the world now, and want ones for themselves. The thing that turns them off is the price. Every single one of them has a dell or an HP/Compaq and has never had their parents spend more than $500 on a computer before :rolleyes: Even the mac mini seems to turn them off at the price point of $599. They need to realize that they are not getting a dell or a Compaq, but a Mac.

    While for sometime the price does seem a little high, I managed to convince my parents into buying me an iMac, (but they also think I'm still going to have it, and use that as a sole computer for college:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: I'll be buying the latest Apple Portable at that time and maybe keep my iMac for old times sake mostly because it will be about 5 years old.)

    My new pro laptop has also put some people up on the fence who would never have considered an apple computer before; everyone loves messing around with photobooth, seeing the backlit keyboard, and the compact design. Price is an issue, still, like you said, but you really are getting something different. Good luck with getting that portable in the somewhat distant future :)

    show them the refurb page. those prices may be low enough to tip them over the edge
