This is one of the strangest travel-related stories that I’ve read in a while.  Seems that Orbitz has decided, if you’re using an Apple computer to browse their website, you’re going to be presented with more expensive hotel rooms.  Why?  Because Orbitz has found that if you’re a Mac user, you’re more apt to play for an upgraded hotel room than a regular one.

Apparently Mac users (average household income $98,560), when choosing the same hotel as a PC users (average household income $74,452), will choose an upgraded room.  This is some strange stuff going on here…

So beware – if you’re going to get a hotel room and are on an extreme budget, don’t use a Mac to book your trip.  At least not on Orbitz!
