Actually, you're paying for the engineering of the hardware (as well as some for the sofware, I suppose) so the word 'tax' is not appropriate because it would suggest that Apple's hardware doesn't have any added value compared to a similarly spec'd notebook from another vendor.


I don't buy into that superior hardware engineering, so I'll use the term hardware tax. I buy an Apple for OSX, not the "superior hardware". They're just PCs, but if your buying into the reality distortion field then have at it.
