The recent release of the first Intel-based Macs at MacWorld San Fransisco 2006 has led to the inevitable discussion on Apple’s pricing. I’ve read several blog posts and news articles that bring up that old subject.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that many complain about Apple’s pricing, calling the new Macs overpriced compared to similarly equipped PCs that cannot run Mac OS X. And I am so sick of the constant whining about price, most of it from people who have never owned a Mac.
To put it simply: you get what you pay for. I don’t care if a PC is less expensive or has better specs. It can’t run OS X. Period.
