Apples From Oranges

From a reader, this correction:

Regarding your post on your computer woes, a correction. Apple does not “design and manufacture all it’s components.” Apple buys commodity parts just like every other computer manufacturer for things like hard drives, CD and DVD drives (I have an Apple G4 with a Pioneer DVD-RW drive, and hard drives from two different manufacturers), video cards, memory, flat screens, etc….What you get for the extra money in a Macintosh is a much more finely engineered set of operating software (well worth the price, in my opinion).
