Not sure why there's an argument on whether mac of pc holds value better. Thought it was pretty well known? Anyways had an Asus G1S for 2k and 1 year later resell value was $500. Had a macbook 13inch aluminum unibody (yes it was a non pro version with aluminum unibody) for $1200ish I think and sold it for $500 4 years later with a bit of blemish but everything on it worked fine. If i was to buy a PC laptop again, it sure as hell better be a great deal or I'll just pick up last years top of the line for half or less.
