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.

The problem is more often that Apple tends to make weird combinations to save money - big-ass processor, yet crappy and too little RAM, sub-standard hard drives, underpowered video cards, and so on.

That being said, Apple rules the roost when it comes to laptops (although HP's Envy line is comparable now, I just haven't ever seen one here) and the iMacs. Best computers you can recommended to friends and family.


So a Radeon 5XXX series video card and 4GB of RAM as standard is considered horrible these days? colour me confused given that I can do my work quite comfortably on 4GB of RAM. If the criticisms were directed at the Mac Pro - its always been a rip off ever since it was released. There was a moment in history where the PowerMac low end model was actually within reaching distance of the prosumer but these days in NZ you're forking over at least NZ$4K+ for something that is only marginally better than the NZ$600 cheaper maxed out iMac.
