With Microsoft putting up it’s own PC vs Mac comparison (guess who wins on this one?), Dell ups the ante by erecting a similar page comparing Apples to Apples.

Apples to Apples?  Huh?

For some reason, Dell’s marketing thinks it’s own offerings are comparable and superior to the MacBook equivalents.

The page pits Dell’s Studio 15 and 17 laptop line up against the equivalent MacBook Pro models and its desktop offerings up against the Mac Mini and iMac.

Here’s some of the comparisons made by Dell:

Dell seems to have forgotten the comparison of some of the more technical aspects, such as battery life, size and weight, display panel type and resolution, among other things but hey, at least the site is up so we can draw our own conclusions from it.
