Ha, and people say Macs are expensive?

So the two new machines are expensive, but then what do you expect in a low volume market - they have to recoup their development costs some how.

At the end of the day, like with getting a Mac, you make a decision. Are you willing to pay a premium for what you really want, rather than just getting the cheapest "it'll just do" thing? I decided (for various reasons) that I was, and got a iBook, and haven't ever regretted that decision.

If you're on a budget, then you can always get a RiscPC and put it in a tacky PC case and pretend it's an Iyonix ;)
