i got a desktop AND laptop, custom designed for $1000 each. theyre both better than the respective top of the line mac and theyre awesome.
have a geeze at custom pcs. theyre much cheaper.
EVERYONE (within reason) makes pcs and pc parts so theres a competitively priced market whereas apple dominates theirs.. no one makes ios computer systems but apple. keep in mind if you have any issues it can be much much harder to fix them, but you probably already know this. good luck!
