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.

Most consumers won't care or won't look at such details, they'll just get the upgrade and smuggly be glad that it was expensive. Everybody has to have Itunes to use there Ithingy after all and if your getting a new computer.. why wouldn't you buy the Ilappy to run Itunes for your Ithingies?
