One of the things that most people disagree with Apple is their exorbitant price for their devices. To some, this is simply a premium to get better devices but then again, is it really better than other devices?
Let us take the example of the cheapest 13-inch MacBook Pro. It costs $1,199 and it features a 2.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 320GB hard drive and a standard Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphic card. For the tech savvy users, specifications like this won’t push the device far. Now let us see what $1,199 can get a user that is looking for any other brands of notebooks.
For this example, we shall compare the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 15 inch Dell XPSz which also costs the same. At the same price, you can get a 2nd-generation Intel Core i5 with 8GB RAM, 750GB worth of storage and a dedicated graphic card. Suffice to say that you can get a laptop more powerful than the MacBook Pro at the same price with a bigger screen.
To some, this argument may be non-existent but to those who are in financial constraint but is looking for a good notebook, it may be wise to take a look at other brands as well.
