Crashing Apples

CRASHING APPLES….Here’s an odd post from Virginia Postrel. She writes “Kudos to Apple” because they fixed her computer when its hard drive crashed, and then says this:

One piece of advice to Apple buyers: Always get the AppleCare. You’re buying expensive hardware from a company that’s best at software. Your computer almost certainly will need service.

So Apple makes crappy computers that are bound to fail, but at least they fix them when you take them in? Actually, I kinda doubt that Macintosh hard drives fail any more often than those on PCs, but even so this really doesn’t seem like a great sales pitch.
