Eu gosto de gastar dinheiro / Eu não

Hummm. E que tal esta frase para uma nova campanha I'm a Mac / I'm a PC? Não sei, é só uma ideia que me surgiu depois de ler isto...


Let's take an example. For less than $500, you can buy a Compaq Presario CQ50Z laptop. It comes with a 1.9 GHz dual-core processor, 1 gigabyte of memory, an Nvidia GeForce graphics card, 120 gigabyte harddrive and wireless networking. A capable machine by today's standards and more than adequate for an online investor, for less than $500.
Now, let's see what's available from Apple. You'll need to spend at least $1,099 for a MacBook, which comes with the same memory and hard drive. The MacBook has a slightly faster microprocessor, 2.1 GHz, but you won't notice the difference if you're just Web surfing. In this case, you save $600 that could be invested in stocks instead of sent to Cupertino. And this is just one example.



Não estão convencidos? É que isto surge mais ou menos na mesma altura em que eu li este outro artigo...


In the past, I have defended Apple's pricing, because when comparing Macs and Windows PCs of similar price the hardware features were about the same. That situation has dramatically changed in the last six months, particularly the last three months. I should have paid more attention than I did to this growing disparity, which is separate from but related to average selling prices.

E depois, sou eu que tenho mau feitio...
