how do they get away with this?

>> No.54205318

Well, their laptops are around $1200

Really the only problem I have with Apple is their price: OSX seems just as good as Ubuntu from an outside perspective (I've never used OSX)

I didn't know a 27 inch 5120x2880 screen is considered a "laptop component".

>> No.54205458

Other computer manufacturers do the same. Apple also happens to exclusively have great screens for that type of monitor desktop. On top of that is the Apple fan boy tax.

Also, when the first 5k iMac came out, there was no competition at all for their price. The cheapest 4k monitor had cost the same and didn't include an actual computer.

>> No.54205521

Also, they "get away" with this because Apple is a business. Apple is in business to make money. Don't want to spend $1500 on an Apple computer...don't fucking buy it.

>> No.54205528

It's powered by laptop class components. That means the CPU and graphics are the same components that would normally be put in a laptop.

>> No.54205531

PC all-in-ones are also comparatively overpriced.

Not anymore. You can run FreeBSD on a superannuated C2D that costs under $200, /tpg/ does it all the time.

Correct, it is Solaris, a System V Release 4 UNIX operating system free for download and installation cost free for both the SPARC and x86 processor architectures.

You can take any hardware you want these days and put a true UNIX operating system on it, none of the *BSD nonsense.

I don't think you understand why people use UNIX.

>> No.54206024

This, the 5k ones in my office have 6700k and 32gb of ram in them for video editing.Bit overkill and I hate that they lack any decent network capability or expansion options. But the 295m inside it is a tonga chip slightly underclocked, it's not a slouch by any means.

>> No.54206069

but isn't the 5K variant 2500? Also 5K on a 27" screen is retarded

>> No.54206089

Slowlaris on x86 (desktop sparc is dead)

Yes it's pretty retarded. It's such a pain to use with the shity magic mice as well. So far it's only plus point is being able to edit FHD and have FHD rushes side by side with boat loads of screen real estate. Then again you arguably don't need native res for editing.

I think only the 21" uses laptop components ... besides, who gives a fuck. They should be perfectly adequate for all the task most people would do on these, while allowing an AIO design.

Because a 5K display by itself costs $1000-$1600.

Because Apple has made a very successful brand. Also their desktops are good for everything except gaming. If it had a competent GPU in the thing, I guarantee you more of you non-neet fucks would buy one. I probably would because I appreciate the build/screen quality.

What the fuck anon are you retarded or just a macfag? The CPU and graphics are way more important than the screen, especially considering most people use macs for video editing anyway.

>The CPU and graphics are way more important than the screen
The most resource intense thing most people are youtube videos and maybe photoshop. The lowest CPU you can get is still a desktop i5. And why do you need a full sized GPU for a computer that won't be playing games?

>> No.54208187

The CPU and GPU of the iMac are perfectly fine for video editing though. Besides, a good screen is obligatory for it, while finishing your work 2 minutes faster is a "nice have"

Given the better software on OSX, it'd probably finish before a much faster Winshit PC either way.

They are pretty similar and perfectly fine for most people. The 1% who make big budget movies, spend much, much, MUCH more on monitors and hardware. Stuff that doesn't have any bearing for discussion of relatively cheap hardware like iMacs or Dells.

There's no excuse for buying an expensive all-in-one desktop, it's not limited to Apple.

A good screen will last a decade. The actual computer components will get outdated in ~2 years, and you'll be left with 27" aluminium mirror.

If you do nothing but edit text and images, little gimmicks like a better screen can make it worth it.

The free market values and evolves based on personal taste. There is no high council of nerds deciding what is worth what and whether or not more of it should be made, only hordes of tech illiterates (windows/OSX) and a few very high paying professionals (real UNIX, VMS)

Difference being that sun machines were useful for actual computing, while OS X is worthless even for playing video games - compared to fucking linux, of all shit.

UNIX machine: Swappable ECC RAM, next generation I/O buses, SMP, high-end processing units
Mac: Generic intel hardware, may include lasst-gen advances, maybe even a mid-range xeon
UNIX machine: performance oriented
Mac: experience oriented

A certified UNIX that has stayed true to its niche as a reliable and high performance computing platform for the higher echelons of computer users - those who compute things that actually affect the world and rely on their computers to do that well. Machines are often licensed out to customers. You wouldn't use anything else for high demand data like a stock exchange unless you bought top programmers and sysadmins to run a custom linux system for you.

OS X is a toy meant for the everyman, or windows-flavored UNIX. You wouldn't even trust it to run a mail server under moderate load, or rely on it for heavy-duty local use like rendering or simulations.
