Apple The "Macs are too expensive" argument is one of the most tiresome and long-lived flamewars in internet history. Obviously, Apple makes a premium product and charges premium prices, and you can always find a computer from another vendor that seems to match or exceed specs that costs less. But if you look at Apple's Mac Pro line, and compare it not so much to other vendors, but to the past lineup of Mac Pros, you discover some very unpleasant truths that help explain why Apple is enjoying record earnings for their Mac line, but doing so to the detriment of some its most loyal and valuable customers.

I'm not a Mac Pro user, but I'm a fan of Apple laptops. I'm afraid of Apple, with its newfound love affair with mobile devices, now seeing its Mac user base as a resource to be exploited rather than as a market to be cultivated. I hope this Mac Pro business is an anomaly and not the new normal.
