Are we beating a dead horse yet? Or should everyone continue to repeat what has already been said?
Exactly, there are those that will buy a Mercedes when an Taurus will do the same function. And others that think anyone that buys a Mercedes is nuts for doing so. Maybe its for the design (they are far sexier than a Dell any day), maybe to be compatible with the rest of the industry (the graphics, photography, and art industries are predominately MAC based). Whatever the reason, telling a Mercedes buyer to get a Taurus cause it costs less and does the same job isn't going to wash. So why try to beat it into them! Move on and enjoy your dell.
