* I do say "affordable" with a footnote. Apple is an "elitist" provider of hardware/software. And knowing the price premium they charge, I wouldn't consider them to provide affordable solutions that rival home built (DIY) solutions. The main thing they have going for them is OS X. This is what everyone wants, an alternative to Windows!
