    That's an absolutely top of the line laptop they are asking for there..

    If they are asking for Apple, then it is probably because of some design software they use there and you can't really replace it with a PC.

    yea if you want the premium performance and features of an Apple, you will pay the Premium price to match. Graphic designers need an Apple about 90% of the time since Mac OS X has all the design software built into iLife 06' You cant build an Apple Laptop since Apple doesnt sell OEM version of its Mac OS X operating system. Looks like your stuck with it.
