I have no more than $1,500 to spend. I was dead set on getting a great MBP13 either a current gen when the newer model comes out, or see what I can get on with the new models for that amount. However...I started digging around since at this point, all I can do is wait and I pieced together the following Dell system: 24in 4K monitor $374 Dell Desktop 4th Gen Intel i5-4460 12GB DDR3 2TB HD 7200 Total w/ monitor: $874.98 I also have an existing 24in Dell monitor that I could use as a dual monitor setup. I know it's hard to answer the question of Mac or PC here, my use will be pretty typical but all this waiting to pick up a MBP has caused me to look around and this isn't a bad deal. I would be spending a good deal more for a MBP which I was going to use a desktop replacement. Thoughts? Good deal? Bad deal? Just get the Mac already?! Gah!
