    I think I have said this before, not so sure. But when they:

    :[
    -Hide secrets from us
    -Not being the apple we know.
    -Always updating (I understand, but I am only 15 you know) example, hey! I got a 2.16GHz MacBook! huh? what 2.2GHz Macbook with X3100 graphics acellerator and expandable 4GB RAM? With Leopard too?!? I have Tiger!
    -Giving us less privileges


    :]
    -Giving the best stuff (most powerful mac, smallest cpu, thinnest notebook, top-of the iPods, MacBook!)
    -They give the best designs
    -They think like we do!
    -they keep it simple with small choices yet with big dilemmas (iPod nano or touch?)

    what i dont lie about apple is how they overprice their computers. I could go to dell and buy buy a more powerfull computer from them and it will still cost $200 cheaper then the mac counterpart.

    I hated the idea of buying an iPod, like 4 years ago. I thought it was just hype. A cool fashionable device that was portrayed as the "popular" item. But I have to admit, it works pretty darn nicely.

    Because of its fame, Apple likes to gauge customers. Like brand name clothes because of their label. Apple is nothing but a label.

    You pay the premium to:

    -Get a product that looks sexy
    -A superior Operating System
    -Smaller size

    To me that sounds like a fine deal.

    I agree when you said they're constantly updating their products, it's like you're being punished for buying one of the first of a certain product.

    apple is also somewhat restricting. like how if you have an ipod, you MUST use itunes, it keeps trying to restrict jailbreaking (even though we get by that...) and they even brick your iphone, if you wanna f*** around with it. i think thats bullsh*t.

    i think apple should figure out a way to work w/ dell so they can sell cheaper machines with OS X, and at the same physical dimensions...
