again, MacOSX IS on BSD; just install WINE and hack at it and you could get just about any Window$ app running...

Well, it matters what are you are intending to do. If you are just going to be doing word processing and excel, than all you need is a barebones system, like a low end core duo processor or even a pentium 4, 1 gig of RAM, either an integrated graphics card or a low end one like a GeForce 6800 or something, and storage.

If you know you are going to be doing lots of work, maybe storing huge amounts of data, or pictures, etc, go with 500gb of storage. Otherwise, go with about 250gb.
And thats about it

Whereas Win7 will run on a 1ghz cpu with 512mb of ram, I would highly advise at minimum a dual core 1.5ghz-2ghz processor with at minimum 2gb of ram...

A real world spec though would end up 2.5ghz or so dual/quad core with 2-4gb ram and 250gb+ hard drive space... And it's even affordable now (we're talking a 4gb ram 3ghz quad core with a 2tb raid array disk for under a grand).

Mac variants are not published by many of the PC software manufacturers including the leading software producers. The decision depends on the individual to choose the pc. The knowledge about the pc makes easy to configure, and the person who buys own pc can make cheaper price and losts longer.
