If an album only has 3 good songs. that's the beauty of digital distribution because you can buy just the 3 songs and not the entire album.
And this then goes on for everything. Is an Album with 12 tracks but only 3 are any good really worth the asking price? Are any of Apple's devices "really" worth their asking price? If they were, would there be a purpose for Hackintosh's?
"Worth" is completely subjective. WhatTheTech and 3.14r2 (and many others) believe that Photoshop is worth the $700, many do not as well and thus go beyond the bounds of the law (in most countries) to obtain it. But for professionals, they are willing to spend the money on it, because they need it. For the casual user, I don't know that I'd recommend getting Photoshop because of the price (unless, of course, you're a college student; my sis got Photoshop CS5 from Arizona State for $80), and that's why we have GIMP. Another program: Finale, music notation software. It costs $600 (w/o discount). But it not only allows you to create sheet music, but contains many Garritan instruments (very realistic instruments that are very expensive standalone), and allows you to record audio straight in, among a plethora of other features, and many people love it. I know we do, we have the full version of Finale because we write a lot of music (but it's only $350 with education discount, so that helped). But this argument has already been rehashed so I'll move on...
For me, I believe that all of Apple's devices are worth their asking price (with the exception of the Mac Pro, as of 3/29/13). I have many reasons, but even though you might be able to get a similarly spec'ed PC for $100-$500 cheaper than the equivalent Mac, there are a lot of things about Macs that make them unique; in Apple notebooks, battery life has always been superior (even pre-Unibody machines had good batteries, for the most part, and the Unibodies are unbeatable), and the build of Macs is very sturdy yet utterly beautiful, with everything custom designed and well thought out. And no, the value of Apple's computers has nothing to do whatsoever with the existence of hackintoshing. I and many others hackintosh for the fun of it/educational purposes. My hackintoshing started with repairing a friend's iMac, and then he gave me his old PC. Since my family is a bunch of Mac-heads, we didn't have Windows lying around, and so I thought "What the heck, let's see if this actually works," and I hoped it did because I really needed an Intel Mac instead of the G3 I was using. And it did work. And I've learned so much. But I would buy an Apple computer any day, hands down.
But I digress.
