but 100% more, that’s crazy talk.

Here is a Dell Inspiron similar to my personal laptop:
Asking price is $1299.

Here is a comparably equipped MacBook Pro:
Asking price is $2799.

I tried to keep the two units as similar as possible. Apples to apples, if you will. The Mac is 2.15x more expensive than the Windows 10 box from Dell. I didn’t shop this around at all tonight, and possibly a better deal could be had from another Windows vendor.

I’m even willing to concede Macs have a certain jai n’ais se quois that Windows lacks. I didn’t feel that was worth $1500 for my application. Others (my dear Bonnie included) feel the premium is worth it.
