Following our earlier post on the impact of pricing pressure on Dell, an alert reader sent in this comparison yesterday:

Dell Inspiron E1405:
14.1″ screen (1280×800)
Core Duo 1.83
1 GB RAM (can’t get 512)
80 GB HD
Total cost: $1540

MacBook:
13.3″ screen (1280×800)
Core Duo 1.83
512 MB RAM
80 GB HD
built-in Webcam
Total cost: $1100

…So the Apple premium now stands at -$340, close as I can figure.
