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 get it...

I really don't see what goal of the article is. I don't understand why people complain about Apple that much.

If you want one, buy it, if you think it's too expensive, buy something else. Whether you are talking about computers, dish washers, televisions, furniture, cars, ... it doesn't matter. You always have brands that are more expensive than others and that doesn't mean they are better.

The only thing those articles do is give Apple a lot of free publicity... people only remember the name and that the press writes about them a lot.
