Everything you say is true, but the fact is that it is a great price  
even if it were simply a Blu-Ray player.

A "Mid-Range Mac" and a Blu-Ray player together would cost a *lot*  
more than the PS3.

Plus you get to play with Linux on it, no extra cost :-)

Talk about the PS3's "problems" all you want, it's still one of the  
best hardware deals out there.
