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.

So a Radeon 5XXX series video card and 4GB of RAM as standard is considered horrible these days?


The the issue here are the XXXes in the model number. There are plenty of (cheaper) gaming laptops with far more powerful gpus and much greater space and heat dissipation constraints...

Yes, which means that some of us don't want a laptop that is over two inches thick, horrible battery life and like carrying around a tank in ones bag all day. I'd sooner have a machine that has a good battery life that is slightly less powerful than the alternative offered by pc vendors.

That is true but you didn't see the my point. What I meant to say was that there are no technical reasons to but anemic gpus in an imac, especially considering macbook pros can have much more powerful gpus relative to its tiny size, why can't imacs. If you want a powerful gpu in a desktop mac you have to get a mac pro (which sometimes comes with exceptionally bad gfx cards relative to it's other specs and price).
