You can get netbooks for < $300 and PC laptops for roughly that amount. For the same price as a mac, you can get far superior components in a PC lap. The build quality edge for mac products is far from convincing. They're nice, and if you're willing to pay for what it is by all means. But for the average computer user there is little tangible benefit.
(Also, if you're not a moron you don't have to buy anti-virus on a PC either. Virus free for half a decade on my PC laptops, never so much as installed an antivirus program)
