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.

I'm sorry but that just hasn't held true in the last decade. Time and time again you'll find head-to-head comparisons between the price of an Apple system versus the main PC manufacturers (usually Dell) and in most cases Apple is competitive, or often less expensive than a similarly configured PC.


ON WHAT PLANET!?! Between the anemic RAM and drive sizes, outright extortion for upgrades at point of sale, and non-upgradeable built in video that lags a three years behind modern middle-of-road even on their triple-thousand dollar alleged "pro" machine...

Especially with that mythical Apple quality figured in... Which is to say nonexistent rinky poorly engineered garbage that makes decade old Packard Bells look good. (which is like saying a new auto design makes the 1984 Yugo GV look like a quality automobile)

Mind you, many of the other points are correct -- but when it comes to their hardware? I see the RDF is in full swing.
