They're just overpriced. You can get some MAC's that are better specwise than a PC but expect to pay about twice the price. Really they have limited applications to buy one, unless you do some serious video editing and the likes. But even then there's stuff on a PC than you can get to do that.
MAC vs PC debates always end up in flame wars. But in essence, a PC will always be cheaper and usually better. Apple(who make the Mac) excel at marketing to people who want to have the most expensive things even though it really isn't that good. I do admit, Mac's are pretty on the eye, but it doesn't justify paying twice the amount you would for a PC.
And never listen to them MAC adds on youtube either. Watch them cause they're funny but don't take them seriously. If you're considering buying a computer, post it here on BC what you need it for and how much you'll be spending max. There's plenty of people here, me included who'll take a look and put together a build for you.
