Apple's relase of new iMac and Mac mini models today is bound to generate lots of enthusiastic commentary. What I can't help immediately noticing is that despite the frequent suggestion that Macs have got more affordable, these are all still more expensive than Windows boxes. To take a single example: the new Mac mini (2.0GHZ Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, 120GB drive) is $1,049. For less than that ($999), you could pick up a Dell Studio notebook with twice the memory, more drive space and a 15.4 inch display (and a desktop would be even cheaper). Sure, you could argue that comparisons aren't fair because of design or reliability or an extra Firewire port or whatever, but the general conclusion seems to hold across the range: for the same amount of money, your Windows box will have more grunt.
