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.

but they have the best OS


They may have had a few years ago. Today? Forget it - Windows 7 is better in almost every aspect. It's faster, more responsive, has far better graphics and audio subsystems, and requires far fewer resources to get there.

Mac OS X has been the neglected child for a while now, and the cracks are starting to show.
