Best answer: They're not worth the price. You can get far more hardware for your money with a Windows PC. They're not "Engineered" better than a high end PC. In fact, a custom build with the right parts will have far superior engineering, but you will only understand this if you are familiar with the actual engineering. Apple just does a good enough job with their so called engineering to make sure things won't break within the first 3 years. Apple still buys their memory, processors, storage from 3rd parties like Intel and Samsung. Apple uses Asus and Foxconn to make their motherboards, which I think they call LogicBoard. The only thing Apple truly makes is the O.S. but it's derived from Linux like Android is.
Mac OS and iOS run light and they don't overallocate hardware resources like Windows 10 does. Apple's Operating Systems don't come with Bloatware like Android phones do. Of course Apple's Operating systems are very streamlined and they lack a lot of customizations but this is only an issue for Tech Savvy people. One thing about Windows is, a person is either good with it or they aren't.
The people who typically buy Apple products are the ones who have been burned by Androids, cheap laptops, or they just aren't good at figuring out Windows. I'm typing this message on a $500 Lenovo laptop that's a piece of crap. People get tired of unreliable computers and then they buy an Apple.
Generally you won't find a reliable PC until you hit the $900 range. These companies like Lenovo, HP, Dell, etc don't put a lot of effort into their low end products, and they make profits off these devices by using the cheapest hardware they can find. On the other hand, if you went out and spent $1500 on a heavy Gaming laptop then you're going to get something that's reliable. Clevo, for instance is renowned for making some of the best laptops on the market, but you're not going to find one for much less than $1k.
Culture is the other reason. Did you know that owning Bitcoins is a bragging right in South Korea? It's the same thing with Apple products.
Some people love Steve jobs but if you really do any research on him, he is a whiny POS. He's a real piece of work. If hell actually exists then you will find him there raking coals.
