I like the look of the new Macbooks.  But I've just got a new notebook PC
(to replace my 6-year-old workhorse).  For below the price of a Mac mini
I've got a 17" 1920x1200 display, a dual-core CPU, 4GB of RAM & a 500GB
hard drive.  Admittedly you have to keep your eyes open to find a deal
like that (a special from TigerDirect; the regular street price for this
system is a lot closer to the price for a Macbook), but the deal savings
would pay for another nice lens ...
