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 don't know. You haven't specified "who" you are talking about. I'd be surprised if Apple was the only one guilty of it. Of course, apple also gets much more press than dell, Microsoft, Hp, asus, acer, creative labs, logitech, cannonical, or red hat * so there sins are magnified as well.


* See how easy that is? I just thought of competing companies and named them! Is that too much to ask?
