The claim in the 'previous thread' was a specific PC compared with a specific Mac not
the comparison of PCs and Macs in general. The point being that you should not compare anything on the merest vainer of specifications. I know that Macs are not cheap but then neither are good
I my office I have a number of PCs, two of them have a very similar spec in terms of processor hard drive amount of ram (the sort of things they were being compared in the thread you mentioned). The cost of the two PCs differs considerably and in performance terms they also differ considerably, I would also say that comparing these two PCs would be like comparing a BMW and a Toyota purely on the grounds of having four wheel...
That was not a bigoted response, so I would thank you for not insinuating that I am a hypocrite.
|The fact of the matter is selling a completely equivalent product for higher prices is a bad business model.|
And yet there it is...unless of course they are not completely equivalent or they are not substantially different in price. I have yet to see anyone who makes the claim about "a completely equivalent product for higher prices
" supply any form of substantive proof of the claim. I am more than willing to change my opinion on this but every time I have compared systems (to my level of satisfaction), similar specs are similar prices. If you have lower standards of equivalence you may see different results.
