Technically $500 but you get an inferior screen, but the rest of the specs are close enough.
OS war aside, it's a pretty tough sell to argue that the screen and the rest of the notebook is worth literally 4x the "expensive" bits.
I get a MacBook is definitely better than a cheap Inspiron, but is it worth $1500 for that privilege?
Some say yes. I say no.
