Why You Shouldn' t Buy
a Mac
Written by your friend in
Mac computers are more popular nowadays than they' ever been. Why is this? it' s common knowledge that they cost more than PCs, so
why are so many people willing to buy them? is it the fact that they come preinstalled with Mac OS? Possibly, but let' s not forget that OSX can
be installed on any other PC (yes, I said OTHER PC; Macs are just personal computers with a brand name). is it purely because of the appear-
ance? I will admit that they look great, but is that worth the extra money? Let' s look through the "Configure your Mac Pro" page from Apple' s
website to present the facts in a fair way. We' ll find out once and for all if Macs are worth what Apple asks for them.

There must be a reason for this obscenely
high price, right? Surely Apple has packed
some serious hardware into this computer to
justify the price. Let' s go on.

I chose to dedicate a lot of text to the hard drive section, since the price differ-
aims here are Just astounding.
Here we learn that Apple values a my at . That is approximately
31 cents per gigabyte.
The Western Digital Caviar Black was Hard Drive costs on ,
which is around 12 cents per gigabyte. Apple is charging about 19 cents
more per gigabyte than Western Digital, a very reputable hard drive manu-
factures. Keep in mind that the Caviar Black line is unusually expensive when
it comes to hard didn' t want to make Apple look bad.
Luckily, ' s caviar Black lines also have no and no variants. so lets corn-
pare those as well. shall we? That ought to be fun.

Apple prices its as drive at a stunning , while the Caviar Black counter-
part is priced at a much more reasonable slim. Apples costs more
These hard drives all have the exact same specifications. git could
be said that was hard drives are better drives. I Cmd it hilarious that
Apple chooses to overcharge by this much on something as simple as a hard
drive. Unless I' m missing something, Apple' s hard drives aren' t in any way we
no wait, let me guess. They have an aluminum casing-.
Except not even that is true. There really isn' t any excuse for this; it is a blatant
ripoff. At this rate. you could actually build an entire computer for the price of
one of Apple' s TTB hard drives. And a decent one at that.
The emu is a remand of the (oh midis, always ),
the version of which is priced at on Newegg depending
on the brand. unsurprisingly, Apple values their remanded version at
which is no more at best. Price aside, this is a severly underpass-
med video card for a system like this. m won' t be maxing out any
games, provided you' re using your same M'' Apple monitor. But we' ll get
to that later.
Radeon 48705 arm nearly as popular as they used to be. They' re two
years old now. The only new ones remaining online are around ,
which is only so less than what Apple chooses to charge. Good on
you, Apple. still, these can be found for under you used, and the only
reason they' re so expensive now is that the supply is low.
This is just rich. All it is is a DVD horner. They can be found ANYWHERE
for 520530, and Apple' s" " is . You do the math.
Okay, I' ll be fair here. l was have a microphone. speakers, and
webcam. But it also costs ssoo. There' s too large of a price margin to
compare it to other " monitors, but there aren' t many that cost this
much.
And apparently, 6 more inches of screen size doubles the price.
Nothing else on the list is really worth mentioning, except this:

They' re even overpricing Microsoft‘ s products. its sad. really.
Let' s not forget that Mac computers are difficult to upgrade. After you spend three or four thousand dollars on a shiny new Mac,
it' ll be obsolete within a few years, forcing you to repeat the process all over again. Don' t fall for the marketing.. Don' t become one
of Apple' s mindless sheep. And most importantly:
Don' t get a Mac.
