I assume you are talking about PC's? If so...
For instance I bought a HP DV7T Quad i7 a year ago (customized to my specs) and just about every piece of hardware choices that was available was not available when customizing a MacBook Pro (including no 1080p screen or Blu-ray), yet Apple wanted almost 3,500.00 (including the warranty for it!) That's nuts!
I'm not knocking Apple but their prices are ridiculous and that will always keep me from converting.

So based on that, its fair to say that its a matter of price that really is an issue for most people when considering a mac? For most mac owners, we feel the same way you feel about your iPhone. We feel that while we are not getting the best specs or price, we are getting a superior product because of the beauty and ease of operation.
To be honest, I love my iPhone so much that I would be willing to pay even more for it. If Apple increased the price of iPhone 5 by $100, I would still gladly pay it. So the thought of dropping 3k on a MBP is not an issue for me.

Some people go to wal mart buy a $300 PC and then wonder why it performs like crap. I got my PC for $890, and it's quite fast, and have never had a problem with it. With Mac you have to have connectors for things, commands are weird, he mouse is a pain to click and deal with.

Uhm, my custom built beats the latest iMac by a lot and I only spent about $500 on it. So yea, this headline is pretty legit. News reporters, which you guys claim you are, are supposed to be un-biased, and this article is pretty biased. I wouldn't exactly call you guys "Mac fanboys" but....

We all know PC desktops are better and cheaper than Apple desktops.
Apple notebooks have better battery life than most if not all PC notebooks and also have a better trackpad. They look cooler too which is why people buy Macbook Pros.
Apple dominates in the mobile scene. No competition.
I think I summarized everything.

I like the PS3 controller better. The 360 controller has always seemed like a Fisher Price product to me.

Reading the comments on here annoys me to no end. First of all, use correct grammar and spelling when trying to have an argument. I can understand if English is not your first language but at least have proper punctuation, capital letters where they should be, and all the other basic rules people should know; this is not twitter. On the same note, a changing a "ur" to a "your", or an "i" to an "I" is not that hard. Even people who don't care will still subconsciously accept your point more.
Second of all do you know why things go on and on like this? It's because no one uses any actual verifiable sources. People just post random facts that they conjure up in their head and the next person just dismissed it. I was reading a post on another forum about how the game Civilization 5 was horrible and was selling horrible, and I saw how almost everything he posted was wrong. So I spent a bit of time finding some links, uploading some pictures, and counter-proved every one of his points. That shut him up and a lot of people in the discussion started to see it how I did.

As much as I agree with you Gamemaster77, at this point you're just going to be called the grammar police. People will note this isn't English class
You're not going to get through to any of these people, but I enjoyed your post. It's nice to see someone that I can agree with.

As I read every post in this thread it appears that most of the PC users are concerned about game playing more than anything else...
As far as I am concerned... I like performance when it comes to computers....

More proof PC is cheaper and better than Mac.
Today on www.catchoftheday.com.au they have a:
1TB External USB HDD MAC EDITION for $149 http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/smal...ducts_id=28052
2 weeks ago I brought a 1TB External USB HDD for $68 from the exact same site but as its not a MAC EDITION its $81 cheaper.
