Cheap Macs This Spring?!?

Appleinsider is reporting that Apple will release more affordable versions of their iMac and MacBook computers in order to compete more effectively with the low, low prices of entry-level Windows PCs. Apple already touts the Mac Mini as “affordable,” but it’s a $599 desktop machine with no keyboard, display, or mouse included, and that ain’t exactly cheap in today’s market. They offer no “affordable” laptop computer at present.

If Apple does actually bring the price down on the entry-level MacBook, I might finally be able to get myself one. We’ll see if this is for real, but it’s encouraging to see a site as big as Appleinsider reporting this news.
