                Because the computers are not build by apple. They are built in Asia. They don’t even have the parts.

                        Most people buy apple products and they don't know the consequences happen when it damage the risky and wasting money on it..even a simple problem to fix but you pay alot in authorize service center..specially in hardware components damage dont expect you pay cheaper price for a service

                          You know when I bought an iMac 5 years back and I brought up the 'dust' query, the sales person at the Apple store said something like this 'apple computers don't get dust issues like PC's'! Now 5 years later after my iMac fried because of dust ingestion I know I was lied to. The whole sealed up design is a MAJOR flaw in design. I suppose it's all about getting me to buy another new iMac at double the price.

                              Why would you feature Rossmann -- who knows 50 times more than you do -- in a video and then not let him talk? Ego much?

                                      Bit of broken logic from Linus on spares pricing. If you assembled a car from genuine spares it would cost you a lot more than buying it new. No difference here. Apple could sell spares cheaper, but it chooses not to.

                                        There is a local snowmobile shop around me that will buy a brand new snowmobile sell it for parts at 75% off list and still make a ton of money. There are a lot of things I don't understand.

                                                    I want to know if you guys have heard anything from apple?? They have had to heard about this debaukle. They have potentially lost thousands of costumers. They should send you an offical with an public filmed apology and then fixed their way of doing support for these kinds of problem. If it's about money they should.

Yeah Apple products look amazing, but after two years if something breaks, you are done, you have to pay for it and it´s not one part, it´s the whole thing that comes glued together. No thanks.

                                                                                  And the modern non-apple laptops are going thru this trend, everything is one piece, ok, I get it, it´s a laptop, they have to be compact. But the fact that they don´t have a few screws to open the fan shroud so you can clean the dust is too stupid. In order to clean your laptop you basically have to wait the two years of warranty to pass so whatever you do you don´t loose the warranty before it expires. plus it´s damn hard to open the whole case just to clean one specific part of it, it´s stupid and bad design.
