more than I can say! When DH first asked me about a computer and if I had spent any time looking, I had said that I thought a desk top was what I wanted, and I thought the Mac that is actually a server (?) was their desktop and I could use my monitor and keyboard and it would "only" cost about $600. But I was wrong, and he and I decided I would do an HP desktop as I could get the same features only cheaper.
But then, unbeknownst to me, he talked to the IT guys where he works and came home one day and said he and I were going to go to the Mac store and talk to a certain person he had already talked to about how to get the best deal and what he thought I would need. DH uses a PC, but has an iPad for travel as well as his iPhone, so he often has to run over to the Mac store to get the PC to play nice with his apple stuff, and apparently has a guy he works with most of the time.
