Out of the Blue

Super Bowl Sunday is here, one of my very favorite holidays of the year. The chili has been cooking all night, and I've been contemplating taking my first stab at making some Buffalo Wings, but I'm not sure I will work up enough motivation for that. You'd think we were planning a Super Bowl party with all that, but it is just me and MrsBlue (and the doggies, of course -- Gunnar-man actually watches portions of football games on TV). If I was a betting man I'd take the Colts and give the 5/6 points, but I'm not, so I don't have a particular rooting interest except for hoping it's a good game.

You go ahead and pay $1000 more for that apple logo, I can't stop you.
Firstly, I bought the Dell already.

Actually, just about "now" is the only time to buy an Apple.

When Apple releases a *major* refresh, for the next few weeks the price difference isn't horrid. Just today when I specced out the Dell the same with a 27" LCD, it was close to the iMac w/ 27" LED.

The issue is that for the next few months the Apple will still be the same speed and price, while the Dells of the world already went through a couple of product refreshes and price drops. I think the average Apple refresh time is like 200+ days.

When I bought my MacBook Pro in 2007, it was actually cheaper than the comparable Dell with similar specs (2.4 GHz C2Duo, 15" LED screen, 4GB Ram, etc). A few weeks later the Dell was cheaper. Back in 2007 there were very few led laptops so that might be related.
