Apple is all about design and marketing and it works for them. My wife has been drooling over the thought of owning a MacBook for a while (not the Air) and recently bought one despite the fact I kept telling her she could get a lot more computer for her money (or get a comparable machine for a lot less).

Meanwhile I paid about $500 less for my emergency gaming laptop (not a high-end laptop - I do most of my gaming on my desktop and only need the laptop when my wife or daughter "steal" my desktop). It's got better parts than the MacBook and cost about $500 less. Sure it's heavy as heck and doesn't look as nice, but it will run newer games pretty well (as long as I keep the settings reasonable).

But does it come with a built in web-cam and a shiny case? NO! And that is what every person who drinks the kool aid thinks.
