Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

It's impossible to show some people reason.

And I agree with you.

Apple seems expensive. Particularly if you're comparing PURELY hardware. Then again you're not just paying for hardware are you. You're paying for a very well designed product, the operating system that ties into it, and a machine that lasts easily 5 years.

You will have upgraded twice with a PC and probably past the cost of the initial Mac.

Not to mention their laptops. PC laptops around a School environment I work in, don't last long. They aren't made very well. But hey, at least they were cheap.
Meanwhile the Macs with the aluminum casing are being dropped and bumped into things and just keep working.

People never like to admit that there's more to prices than just the initial hardware purchase. Don't take into the consideration that certain tasks will take half the time. And my time is precious, and expensive ;)
