From Charlie’s Diary (Charlie Stross):
There are several good arguments for not using Apple’s computers. For one thing, they’re expensive; no cheap netbooks here. If money was all there was to it, I’d stick to generic cheap PCs — and indeed, I have run PCs in the past.
Are Mac’s more expensive? No. But Mac’s are not cheap devices, either.
The reason I choose to pay through the nose for my computers is very simple: unlike just about every other manufacturer in the business, Apple appreciate the importance of good industrial design.
