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 count the Toshiba laptops I've had to fix recurrent issues like the power receptacle breaking and falling into the case (nearly impossible to fix without a new bottom shell), six-month life on the LCD lamp and inverter, rampant keyboard failure, etc.

Sounds like bad luck and not indicative of the company.
