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.

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

Why would you? Of course you don't. And here is the proof, in corporate or academic environments where computers are not an individual purchase, the replacement life is the same. If you get a mac, you do not have to keep it five years, and if you buy a pc, which is anyway identical hardware wise, you do not get a new one every two. They are on the same depreciation schedule, because, if anything, non-Apple hardware works longer. Better components, mostly.

Wake up, Cupertino, stop blowing smoke!
