I was wondering if Macs have come down in price at the same rate as PC's. I remember buying an IBM computer in 1989 for around $3500, but I think that also included a dot-matrix printer. My other desktops have been Dells and they were always near the top-of-the-line, so not exactly cheap. I never really considered getting a Mac until this year when I finally gave up on Windows. I think Macs are priced quite comparably now, but were they back then? It seems to me that I always paid around the same price for a new computer but received huge upgrades of the components.
