I need to upgrade
Authored by: krove on May 19, '03 10:40:41PM

I haven't priced a PC lately, but I seriously doubt $800 will get you:

FireWire 800
802.11g Wireless-ready
Gigabit Ethernet
Plus a great case (that frankly hasn't been matched by any of the big PC makers, IMHO) -- it is not without fault though (lack of bays and PCI slots)

Plus all the other features which are pretty standard...
add to that the many extras that are expected with PPC 970s (900 MHz FSB, dual-channel DDR400, etc), and Apple wouldn't touch the $800 price point with a 10-foot pole. Stop dreaming and remember that Apple is a niche-market company with higher margins that Dell et al.
