Matt's Mind

Monday, March 05, 2007


I just saw this ad on an IT shopping site:

Holy crap. My jaw dropped: AU$1,600 for Vista* plus Office. You can buy an entire PC for less than that. Hell you can buy a Mac mini plus a screen for less than that. What is the world coming to when Apple is the value-for-money option?!

I don't understand why MS even bothers with the retail boxed version of Vista/Office when it's about appealing as a shite sandwich.

* An XP -> Vista upgrade is a far more reasonable** $380

** For a given value of "reasonable".
