It’s a question I’ve heard from some people since the release of Mac OS X 10.11.3: Why buy a Mac if you can get Mac OSX 10.10 or 10.7 or 10 and 10.6?
And in the case of 10.8 and 10, why buy a computer software bundle if you already have a Mac?
And if you’re thinking about buying a Mac for the first time, the answer to that question is simple: Because if you don’t have the software to use it on the Mac, you can’t use it.
And if, as Mac users have learned to their cost, you don`t need Mac OS 10, Mac OS 12 or Mac OS 13, you might as well be spending your money elsewhere.
That’s because, for the most part, it`s a bad deal for your wallet.
Mac users, particularly those who buy software for the Apple Store, will pay more than most for their Macs.
In fact, Macs are more expensive than PCs, according to research firm IDC, with an average retail price of $1,094.
That`s more than twice the price of a MacBook Pro, which sells for $1 and up.
That makes it a good deal for most users, but it puts a strain on the company`s coffers.
The Mac is more expensive because it costs Apple more to develop the software and hardware than other major tech companies do.
But the company doesn`t want to see its software costs rise because it has to compete with Google, Microsoft and other big players.
It wants to keep those costs low so that it can sell its products at a higher price point.
So it sets its prices lower than those of its competitors to get those costs down, so the software stays affordable for Mac users.
It`s the same rationale that the company uses to justify the price hike for its desktop computers, which are cheaper.
But Apple is a relatively small company compared to its competitors, which include Google, Amazon and Apple’s main rival, Microsoft.
So if Apple`s pricing strategy is to keep software costs low, it has little reason to charge higher than those competitors.
The company`t set its prices to make sure its software is affordable to customers, not to make money for Apple.
Apple also charges higher prices for hardware than most other major companies.
That means it has less room to cut costs in other areas, such as software and marketing.
And that makes it harder for companies to compete in the Mac market.
Apple has been making changes to its business models to make it more attractive to Mac users and lower-income consumers.
The changes include a focus on the quality of the software it sells and a push to keep the cost of Mac hardware low.
Apple said in its annual report for Q4 that its Mac operating system costs more per user than its rival Windows, which costs more than $1.50 per user per year.
But that isn`t enough to cover the costs of making the software, hardware and other operating system components Apple sells, which can total $9 billion per year, according the report.
Apple is paying more than any other company to maintain its software development costs, which have soared from $1 billion in 2007 to $11 billion in 2010, according, according a recent study by consulting firm McKinsey.
That is because Apple is one of only a handful of companies that can keep its software and its hardware costs low.
That doesn` t mean Apple is giving away its products for free.
The operating system and Mac hardware are expensive to develop and build.
Apple, however, is selling those products for less than the price that Microsoft, Google and Amazon charge.
And in a recent report by the research firm 451 Research, Microsoft said that it would make its operating system more affordable by offering a discount to its customers, especially low-income customers, and by offering the Mac a discount on certain software upgrades.
And Mac software developers are trying to get as much of the cost savings as possible by charging developers less.
The idea is to reduce costs for developers so that they can develop more useful and innovative software for Mac.
But as the costs continue to rise, it will be harder for Mac developers to keep costs low because of the way they work.
Mac developers make their living by creating software for Apple products and selling it through the Mac App Store.
That allows them to charge customers for the software.
Mac software is designed to work with Macs running a wide range of operating systems and applications, including Windows, MacOS and Linux.
But for developers, Mac software can work with many different operating systems.
For example, the AppleScript language is one way that Mac software works with Linux and other Unix-like operating systems, and it allows developers to use Macs to build applications that run on Windows and MacOS, for example.
But developers also can use Mac software to build apps that run directly on iOS devices.
