Apple The "Macs are too expensive" argument is one of the most tiresome and long-lived flamewars in internet history. Obviously, Apple makes a premium product and charges premium prices, and you can always find a computer from another vendor that seems to match or exceed specs that costs less. But if you look at Apple's Mac Pro line, and compare it not so much to other vendors, but to the past lineup of Mac Pros, you discover some very unpleasant truths that help explain why Apple is enjoying record earnings for their Mac line, but doing so to the detriment of some its most loyal and valuable customers.

Except the quality of a IBM Thinkpad T60 or something such would had been much better than the Apple Macbook Pro.

Nice looking products thanks to weird circuit boards (insufficient) cooling solutions and well designed (esthethically) cases.

But that's about it.

Shitty components for the price, shitty service outside the US, eventually shitty assemblage of the computers (you get what you pay for.. Not as a consumer but as the company Apple.)
