That's a Mac Pro. Even the craziest Apple fanboys will gladly admit that it is overpriced.

If price was the ONLY difference, it would be a great point.

Not everyone shares the same level of price sensitivity.

It's not news to anyone that Apple hardware costs more. However, that little infographic thing is full of failure and omissions.

I learned that Apple was overpriced years ago, I abandoned Mac in 1996, have rolled my own PCs since then and never looked back.

But it's a free market (until Obama decides to regulate that, too).

However I cannot abide a proprietary machine.

Enjoy the Mac. I wasn't aiming that post at you, though. More along the lines of people like my uncle.

He's seriously the only guy I know who has ever had a virus on a Macintosh.

I cannot stand Apple products or Apple fanboys. You like your computer? I'm happy for you, but you're paying out the yingyang for underpowered technology. If that's what blows your skirt up, great. Don't be the computer version of a Jehovah's Witness about it.

Get back to me when you're still using a 10 year old PC every day.

But yeah, I'm of the "live and let live/compute and let compute" mindset. I live in a divided household; my wife works/programs on PCs. Even she admits my Macs have been far less troublesome than her PCs. And they last longer, too.

I hate Apple:

I hate that fucking hippy that runs it
I hate their overpriced fucking stocks (NO, I didn't buy any... dammit!)
I hate the legions of iLemmings who buy every fucking gadget
I hate those fucking commercials - and the actors who are in them
I hate that it's overpriced
I hate that I actually like a few of their products (but am too cheap to buy them)
I really, really fucking hate the hippies that run that place and their uber liberal "green" bullshit - while they outsource to China.

But I admit that they work well for what they are and are EXCEPTIONALLY good at advertising. So, don't buy it. Laugh at those who do.

Yay!

If you want to spend that kind of money for someone to build you a PC, http://www.falcon-nw.com/

Those guys actually use top of the line components, not OEM generic crap like apple.

There is no dilemma regarding separating a fool and his money.

But in all fairness, any high end workstation from an OEM is going to cost this and more. My Precision M90 cost $5400. One can easily spend 5k+ on a a good workstation.

Top end Xeons cost way more than mid-range. That goes for PC or Mac.

Memory requires ECC, which costs more. PC or Mac.

Highest RATED card on newegg is $300.00. Not the BEST raid card on newegg. Again, applies to both PC and Mac.

Hard drives. Doesn't say, but is Apple using enterprise grade HDDS? Would explain price increase.

Putting a GT120 in it would be retarded. I'll give him that.

Yes, 6" of additional display is worth every penny. The 30" Apple display in not a joke. It is top notch.

Why are you so mad they're overpriced? If they were priced at a point you like, would you buy one despite your other objections?

BTW that info and pricing is pretty old, you can buy a similar/slightly faster Mac Pro now for $800 LESS than what was posted.
