Out of curiosity I looked up both machines on US websites instead of the Irish ones: the Mac is $2,499.00 (about €1,700 at today's exchange rate) and the Dell is about $1,700 (about €1,200). So not only is there a severe macintax, there's also a macinrate that's about 140% in excess of the standard exchange rate. Nice one, Steve.

Oh, and these are made in Cork, right? So there's no handwavy bit about how it costs so much to ship the things from wherever? (Dells are "made" in Limerick, for what it's worth)
