Hmm that'd work if Futureshop actually sold the very expensive Mac which they don't. Actually I think touch-enabled Windows desktop products and Macs are equally overpriced right now...

$800 (no monitor) Apple Mac Mini Intel Core i5 Computer (MC816LL/A) - English : Mac mini - Future Shop
$1200 (is a monitor) HP Envy 3rd Gen Intel Core i5-3330S 23" Touchscreen All-In-One Desktop Computer (23-D039) : All-in-One Computers - Future Shop

Maybe if you're talking about the Retina Macbook at ~$2000?

That said, if someone crams an AMD A4 into a Windows 8 tablet, I'm buying it. I need an upgrade from my Acer A100 that chokes on Wiki pages
