    The last few months my wife and I have been house shopping. We decided it was a good time to upgrade to something a little bit better. Anyway, we are looking at houses of all different price ranges in all different areas. It has been my observation is that when we go into a house that is valued at over around $800k AND the owner is not stretched (IE: owes $800k on an $800k house), that these houses almost ALWAYS have Macs. In houses where the owners are struggling a bit (short sales, foreclosures, upside-down) typically they have PC's.

    I guess this makes sense, because if you have more disposable income, you can afford to get something "better" but if you need a computer and on a tight budget, a PC makes more sense.

    Just found it funny, after I pointed it out to my wife, she now is always looking for the Mac. :D

    That's funny, there were real studies of this. We just took it as an observation from house hunting. :D

    Thanks for the links!
