As enjoyable as they are to use, they do seem to be considerably more expensive than PCs and do they really give you much more for your cash?

Surprisingly, they're not actually more expensive than equivalent PCs.

For a equivalent set of specs on the PC space, you will generally actually find a higher price point. This is especially true in the notebook market.

The difference is that Apple doesn't make downmarket products. They have no competing products in the low end. However, the specs and quality of those lower-end PCs are far inferior to the lower-end Apple products.

if you think that apples are worth the cost then you display somewhat idiotic actions.

Yeah I think they're a bit overpriced. I bought a top of the line Sony Vaio a few years back for a lot less than a similarly powerful Apple.

Right now on BestBuy.com you can get a 2.0ghz Intel i7 Toshiba with 6GB RAM and 750gb HD for $1699, the 2.0ghz Intel i7 Apple has 4gb RAM and a 500gb HD for $1709, on sale, and the Toshiba can play BluRay.

You can have a dell with the same processor, bug 8GB ram and 1TB hard drive for $1499.

There's an Apple on there with the same processor as my 3 year old Vaio, with only 2gb RAM (compared to my 4gb), and no drive and it's $700 more than I paid for mine 3 years ago, the difference is it uses a flash drive so is faster with hard drive access. Is that drive worth paying $700 more, having 3 year old processor technology and not being able to play CDs/DVDs and BluRay? Doesn't seem like it.

You pay extra for the sleek design and to have people think you're cool.

weirdly, it has almost the complete opposite effect on me.

i know a couple of guys who use mac because their graphic design program is better. (i just take their word for it)

I think they're too overpriced.

The iPads, iPods, and the iPhones are decently priced in my opinion, but the laptops and the desktops aren't, not when you consider your use of the product.

If I worked in graphic design, I'd love love love an Apple Computer, but for what I DO use my computer for, I can't justify the price because it just wouldn't be wroth it.

I don't know if they're better for that or not. My wife's a graphic designer and she had an apple laptop, and pretty soon after she got it the power connector got messed up and apple basically told her it's her problem that their laptop wasn't sturdy enough to handle day to day wear and tear. The CD drive also had this habit of eating CDs and there's no way to get them out easily.

She's got a Sony Vaio now that's works pretty well for designing stuff.
