Apple Some people say Macs are too expensive. Some say they aren't. I say they've got it all wrong. Read on to understand how I came to this conclusion.

It's amazing all of the arguing that goes on about Mac pricing but Thom got it right. To some it's worth it and to others it's not. With percieved value the only absolute is that there are no absolutes.

I personally fall into the category of those that think a Mac is worth the cost but don't have the money to buy one. Maybe someday things will change, but for now I'm using Windows for my video editing and Linux for most everything else.

The problem with the article is that he is making it sound like these issues surround perceptions of value when in fact prices can by compared based on specs. When that happens the prices come out to be the same and sometimes the Mac costing less. His article confuses the issue even more.

"I personally fall into the category of those that think a Mac is worth the cost"

Again, its not an issue of feelings... the an accurate comparison can be made
