I've always loved Apple for their innovation and style and have always been a loyal customer. I recently bought a quadcore mac pro for almost $4k and it's great and all, but what really irks me is that my friend's $1000 core i5 PC matches my i7 xeon mac pro in CPU benchmarks. He bought a $60 watercooler and took his processor from 3.4 to 4.7GHz in like 30 minutes. A mac user has to pay $500 more just for a few hundred extra MHz and it STILL won't even be close to 4.7GHz. I'm sorry Apple, but that is just ridiculous. Another thing that really makes me angry is that I had to pay a THOUSAND DOLLARS more for a 512GB ssd when my PC using friend bought a Crucial M4 512GB for $379.99 on newegg. Don't get me wrong, I love macs and will always use mac but many of us are starting to get fed up with the absurd profit margins that Apple charges and we aren't even getting the best performance despite how much extra we pay compared to the PC kiddies. I really hope Apple starts opening up it's platform and maybe lower their prices on high end hardware just a little bit, because it's starting to seem like I payed $3k more than I needed to so I could have a sleek aluminium chassis and a $30 OS.
