As it is right now you're better off (financially) buying a box with windows and installing your distro of choice. It's cheaper anyways.
Sheesh and I thought buying a Mac was more expensive. This costs more and you have to install your own OS! LOL
I heard Dell is going to copycat Apple and open their own stores in malls. I wonder if that will raise the price of their hardware even more. And what the staff will look like, dress (casual or suits), or talk-like: duuuuude.
