Why is the PC version so much cheaper than the Mac version?  I couldn’t see a difference on the site. So to me, LaCie is screwing over Mac users by charging a higher price for the same hardware.

Toast 9 Basic for the Mac and Creator Suite 10 for Windows users

Maybe Toast 9 Basic for the Mac costs $30 more than Creator Suite 10 for Windows users?

I checked out Amazon list of that suite and it me to that its more robust than the Toast 9 Basic for the Mac.

The PC Version only comes with the Creator Suite software, while the Mac version includes both the Roxio Toast as well as the Creator Suite.

OH, well thats bull then.  I don’t need that Windows software for my Mac and why should I pay extra for something for Windows.  Thats really bogus of LaCie.
