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 can't disagree with providing specific examples but offhand, which of those companies that you mention are also marketing there products as perfect and invulnerable to malware or defect the way Apple does? I'd submit that Apple paints a target on it's back and then does all it can to squirm out of responsibility when that advertising image is threatened.
