compared to something like this? What you guys say? This is a computer for my dad, he's been a Windows user so far, doesn't do anything more than the usual web surfing, light photo work etc. Luckily, he isn't stuck in his ways and he likes a lot of stuff he's seen on my Macbook, (the iLife suite mostly appeals, as both my parents aren't anywhere close to being technically minded). The PC on paper is waaay better in terms of specs compared to anything Mac based for around the £750 it would cost for a great PC setup with a 22 inch screen. I know they don't need the power, but Bluray drive, 3gb or RAM, 2.4ghz Quad core, 1TB hard drive is amazing for the price and would last way into the future for their needs. So the question is, spend less and get the technically superior PC, or spend more on the easy to use Mac OS and more elegant hardware?
