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.

"Of course many of the individuals who follow OSNews.com may very well be able to build a comparably spec'd machine by hand for less. My point was, compared to name brand, industry leaders (such as Dell for example), Apple is in fact competitive. If you don't believe so, give Dell's online configuration tool a spin. You may be surprised."
I don't care much for apple or dell, but I did do that.
I compared some iMac (3.2GHz i3, Radeon HD5670) to a machine by dell (3.06GHz i3, Radeon HD5450). Turns out the dell machine costs roughly €600 while the iMac costs roughly €1700.
Unless I'm missing an included 50" Plasma TV the iMac seems like a bad deal.
