I always think that is the wrong way to approach the problem. You will
always get more performance, and you do really want more performance,
the more money you spend. Therefore, what you should decide first is
how much can you afford in total. Set your budget first, then start
shopping round for the features you need. That will mainly depend on
what you expect to do with the machine.
