CNBC: Folks Love Macs

After reporting on Microsoft's price-based ad campaign and responding to a total-cost-of-ownership inquiry, I thought it only fair to complete the triangle with a link to CNBC's report on the relative quality of the Mac-owning experience.

Mind you, if the machine doesn't do what you want it doesn't matter whether the keyboard glows or how cheap it is. I stand by my claim: you need to decide what you want it to do before you can decide whether a particular machine is a "good deal" for you. (Apple apparently made a similar claim, that a PC isn't a bargain if it doesn't do what you want; but this does in fact work both ways.)
