Mac mini Price Significantly Less than DIY PC

Harry Rider on OsOpinion tries to match Apple's Mac mini with a comparable PC and finds out that the Mac mini price is significantly less than a DIY PC. The Mac mini runs at $499 while a DIY PC will cost you $505 for the hardware alone and $1,022 for hardware plus software.

Regardless, to appease those that only look at hardware, I ran the figures both ways. The Apple hardware comes out less in both scenarios. The price comparison reiterates that Apple doesn't charge the supposed 'premium' that is often equated with their systems. Can we finally do away with the fallacy that implies that Apple charges a premium for their computers?
