Why I doubt I'll ever be a Mac owner

Apple Powerbook G4
800 Mhz G4
512M RAM
40G HD

Dell Inspiron 8200
P4 1.6 GHz cpu
512M RAM
40G HD
Windows XP (or Linux :) )

Very similar machines, except the PC is probably a little faster and can dual boot into Windows and Linux. $600 difference. C'mon. Macs are nifty and all, but please. I'm not paying $600 extra for a machine I'll get less use out of. (And no, I can't afford either, but I like to "window" shop sometimes.)
