Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has recently come out and said that Macs are too expensive for Americans during the current economic climate – to be honest, I think they are too expensive regardless of economic climate.
Sure, the products themselves are brilliant: high-quality, great design, functionality and reliability are a few words associated with the Mac (over Windows laptops/PCs in general) however with a price tag averaging over 500 pounds that of a normal PC I’m not sure it’s entirely worthwhile.
I’ve been checking out Mac Computers over the last few months trying to see if it’s worth buying one when I eventually have the money however I’m still undecided – cost has played a big part in that.
I guess it’s a bit better if I use my mates student discount!

I’ve recently started to consider getting an Apple laptop for my new computer. For many years i’ve been an advocate of normal PCs and Laptops, shunning Apple computers, OS X, Linux and anything that wasn’t Windows!
My housemate got a MacBook Pro the other day (one of the new ones) and to be honest it looks pretty decent. One thing you get with Apple is quality and the MacBook Pro certainly delivers in that department.
A couple of months ago I bought a new PC, a Zoostorm from eBuyer. Really this was a bought as a stopgap machine as my old PC died. The Zoostorm cost me 400 quid and has a quad core, 4 gig of ram, pretty crap graphics card (but I don’t play games that often anymore) and a 500gig HDD. I’m now in the process of saving for a laptop.
So I’ve been checking out Mac Computers and they really look like a good option.
But is it really worth paying DOUBLE the price, for the Apple name?
