A shocking piece of anti-Mac propaganda.

Are they really trying to say that they anticipate the TCO of the Macbook Air will be higher than that of a Dell laptop??

I have a load of figures that may disabuse them of that idea....

@Nick - that's a really odd perspective. The Air in particular is overpriced, art that is designed to need in store repair every two years (lithium ion batteries loose 50% of their life in that time and you can't change them yourself on the air).

A comparably powered Dell costs 1/5 the price of the Air.

There are lots of reasons people like to buy Apple, but price leadership isn't going to be one of them any time soon.

Shocking piece of anti-Mac propaganda, or amusing cartoon?

Let me think.

Wait. One Brit who does irony, one American who does not, another Brit to get things back on track ... ;-)
