Brave guy, Yair Reiner, for singlehandedly assailing the “Macs are more expensive” myth (or truism, depending on your particular worldview). In a research note on Apple’s new desktops, the Oppenheimer analyst compared, spec-by-spec, the new Apple (AAPL) iMac, Dell’s (DELL) XPS One 24 and Hewlett-Packard’s (HPQ) TouchSmart IQ800t and concluded that the iMac offers a better value (click on chart below to enlarge). “A side-by-side comparison suggests the new iMacs match up favorably against Dell and HP’s All-in-Ones on a price-to-performance basis,” Reiner wrote. “For example, the $1,499 model has a faster CPU and RAM with better or comparable graphics, and is still $100-$250 cheaper (though it lacks a TV Tuner, ~$60-$100 upgrade).”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
