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.

There are no cheap i5 laptops from apple. If you just want to surf the web on a 15 inch laptop you have to buy a MacBook Pro. Dell will give you a fairly nice and cheap Studio.
If just need a phone that does phone calls, text and the web then you can buy a Android handset for two or three hundred bucks without a contract.
If you just want to listen to your MP3s while jogging every cheap MP3 player for 20 bucks will do.

Apple will always give you the bare minimum. How long had Macbooks CD burners instead of DVD burners? How long did they have only 1 GB Ram when all Vista Machines had (needed) 2 or 4.
Apple products will never have free cases, bumpers, adapters etc (For example my 240 Euro EeePC had a very nice bag included)

And btw not all songs on Itunes are 99 cents anymore.

Edith says: And all extras in the Apple store are way way more expensive then in Dells or HPs store. (Extra RAM, harddrive, SSD, etc)
