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 think if you go back to the 90's you'd see a similar pattern. This is not new behaviour by Apple. This is why I resisted getting an OSX machine for so long, before finally giving in. They had changed for most of this decade, but now it looks like they are going back to the 90's. My last computer was not a Mac, not sure if I will ever go back.
