    No, really? There's no magical fairy dust inside there, lubricated with unicorn tears? Say it ain't so!
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    How does a chat welcoming a new guy go from the idea of "lubrication" from a forum about the idea of Mac go so...

    I would say so, that they have magical fairy dust, lubricated with unicorn tears. This is because one laptop is going around 2k and Society is buying it, literally. Even though you can get a basically better processor on P.C. and features, but for the price, I would say Apple has finally found a way to harvest magical fairy dust and lubricated unicorn tears and include it into their deep and most innermost line of Apple products , so I think it's worth it.

    Based on this, I'm not sure if you're here to troll or honestly want to get a better handle on the value equation of Apple products. So, I'll sum it up for you and see where you go from here.

    Some vendors are better than others, but if you compare identical configurations versus Apple, you'll see that it's not as bad as you thought. These specific comparisons have been done on countless occasions here, so I'm not going to do one right now. Generally speaking, Apple gets about a 15-30% premium on their machines. When you consider the build quality and materials, that's usually a pretty good value. When you consider the OS and accompanying software (and Apple doesn't include any craplets, you get the full versions of the iLife suite, which is a roughly $300 value versus comparable Windows apps), it tips the value equation even further in Apple's favor.

    And of course, when you buy an Apple, you get premium tech support that isn't going to tell you to go call Microsoft if there's an OS issue. And that tech support is typically native-English speakers. That's not to say that you can't get the same level of support from other vendors, but it will usually cost you an extra $100-150.

    There is certainly value in buying a vertically integrated product from a vendor that controls the hardware, support and OS, and I think that's why "society" buys them.

    And of course, if you want to run Windows on it, you can. So, that gives you the best of both worlds and in my opinion is certainly worthy of a premium price.

    Now, if you're gaming and intend to use Windows most of the time, by all means, a DIY PC is certainly the best way to go. But for a laptop that is used for general purpose computing, I would have a hard time recommending anything other than an Apple.
