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.

Pricing

Interesting how a lot of the plus points in this article relate to pricing - especially software. Apple seems to have a grasp of the idea that if they set a price low enough people will pay rather than pirate. If only other greedy businesses would work this way.

I used to defend Mac pricing as being reasonably competitive until around 2008-2009 - the days when you could get a Mac Mini for 399UKP, Macbooks for 599 and so on. But in the last year or two the prices have gone silly, certainly in the UK.

However, it is important bear in mind that Apple often use top-quality components. For example the iMac and Pro monitors use IPS panels. Look for an IPS panel for your PC and they are expensive.
