If somebody can offer a service at a cheaper more efficient price, why not? All this humbug about salaries that one "deserves" to get is purely protectionist and doesn't benefit anybody. Offering cheaper overall inputs provide better value for all Americans to enjoy. If you're peddling global free trade, you've got to be willing to accept that labour needs to move freely and capitalism dictates that the person who can do it cheaper and offers an apple to apple comparison of quality will win. It's pure economics. If somebody can do something cheaper than you can, and is willing to do it, then there is nothing wrong with it.

Is the Dell XPS One Better than the Apple iMac?
The one reason I would choose a Dell over Apple anytime is the home support. If anything ever goes wrong with my dell computer, I run a 20 minute diagnostic test, speak to an agent over the phone for 20 minutes and the next day a technician is despatched to my house my the equivalent part. What's better, this warranty is valid for up to 3 years and Dell has never made a fuss. For USD 30 extra on purchase, I get nights and weekend support as well.
For people like my dad where things need to just work, Windows XP with a good firewall and antivirus program coupled with FireFox is sufficient. That and the convenient fact that if anything goes wrong, it'll get fixed by the next day. For that alone, Dell wins my vote.
I must add that I live in Malaysia and Apple here does not offer home service.
