Better than a dual core, not as good as an i7. Good for light to medium gaming.

Sounds to me like a good deal. It's hard to get an entire computer for anything less than $350. So, since you are only at $500...there was only an extra $150. You certainly didn't get taken for a ride.

This is certainly possible. A core i7 MacBook Pro starts at $2,199 and the core i5 starts at $1,799.

The answer to your question is simple: If you are happy with it, it is a good deal.

Regarding a Macbook or any Mac: They are a rip-off. I would get a normal PC on which you also run e.g. Snow Leopard. That's a cheaper deal - I think it costs $29.

I never ran Snow Leopard myself. But I have seen other people do it. As for prices, compare the hardware specs of any Mac with the same specs of a Windows PC and you will find that the exact same Mac hardware costs nearly twice as much.
