When you look at "PC" hardware, and just compare "processs", "memory quantity" and "disk drive size", to a Mac, you might say "Mac's are always more expensive." But, there is a lot more to a Mac than just the hardware, and this is where Android fanatics miss out on the "benefits" of iOS devices as well.
What you have to understand, is that Apple has enhanced hardware integrations, better software in the OS and tons of things that are valuable, beyond the hardware.
Until you've actually used a Mac for a week to a month, I don't think you can really talk about the price point, with any valid argument.
Certainly, if "functionality" of the computer is not valuable to you, and all you need is the "biggest", "fastest", "most extreme" hardware so that you can hold it up and wait for people to pat you on the back, then perhaps the price point, for you, is on the side of a PC, where you can "build" something that is "the most extreme", even though all of that hardware can't do anything useful, to improve your computing experience in relationship to the price you paid.
Go the the Apple store, and close a macbook. Let is sit for a bit, and then pull it open, and open safari and go to a web page, like this, full of dynamic content. Time the whole experience, do it a couple of different times. Then, go home, and do that on your PC, and see what the best "open-to-page loaded" time is that you can get. Let us know here, how that works out for you. And, make sure that if you have an SSD on your machine at home, that you use an SSD macbook and a non-SSD macbook, and tell us how both compare.
