FAQ! Why are Apple computers so much more expensive than personal computers?
A big difference between Apple and most PC makers is that Apple carries a relatively limited product line. At any given point, Apple offers only around five computer models. If you walked into a store that sells PCs, on the other hand, you’d have a much wider selection. And Apple’s cheapest computer is still several hundred dollars more than the least expensive PC you can find.
Another difference between the two computers’ hardware is PCs are designed to be upgraded. If you buy a base model PC today, you can add more memory, a better graphics card and a whole host of hardware options at a later date. Macs, on the other hand, aren’t meant to be modified, although you can add RAM when necessary. For most people, the need to expand and modify their computer isn’t a concern, but for serious gamers and techies, not being able to tweak their computer can be a big drawback.
There are some advantages to Apple’s limited product line.
The fact that there is only one maker of Macs and that they’re designed so they can’t be modified in any major way ensures a high-quality, efficient operating system.
As a result, the Mac operating system is typically more stable than Windows; it runs faster and crashes less often.
Honestly——- As Per Our Opinions..
It is just a different business model. Apple make their money on the hardware. Microsoft makes their money from license fees. Even before Catalina was available for free. You also get the best customer service and product support in the industry. If you do have an issue you can just take it in to the Apple store.
