Price Comarison: MacBook Pro vs. Dell Inspiron

This guy too a MacBook Pro and configured a Dell Inspiron E1705 to match it to see what the price difference was. He had to make slight changes to both to get the to match closer, such as 2 512mb DIMMs on the MacBook and add a bigger hard drive and a DVD burner to the Dell. What was the price difference?

Final Price:
MacBook Pro: $2,399
Inspiron E1705: $2,341

When you hear people complaining about how expensive a Mac is compared to the PC, they are usually thinking about those deals they see on TV where you can get a complete system for well under $1000. They don’t stop to think that those PCs could not even come close to competeing with a Mac on performance.

It is nice to see that the higher-end PCs are stacking up well against the Macs and making it more of a preference issue rather than a money issue for those who are going for the higher quality machines.
