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.

Successful argument

You've very well stated the case for why you don't want to buy a Mac Pro. Great. So don't. I sure would like Apple to sell systems for a lot less. I'd buy more of them more often.

Your article seems to argue that Apple is doing something immoral, if not boarderline illegal. If you don't like it, don't buy it.
