$$$ = Macs

I love working on my MacBook. I love its simplicity and complexity — the greatest operating system around if you want a computer that "just works," but an endless array of nuances and shortcuts and tricks if you want to delve. (I like to delve.)

I realized how Mac-centric I've become when I heard the news about the proposed "stimulus package" in the works for American taxpayers. ("Stimulus pacakage": what an odd, vaguely indecent term for free money.) I immediately thought of the dollar amounts in terms of Macs:

$600 = a Mac mini!

$1200 = a MacBook! (And a copy of iWork '08.)
I wonder how many other Mac users are thinking about these numbers in these ways.
