Kate again with a look at the Apple Tax.
The list of additional benefits Apple customers receive that you don’t find with the riffraff of Android and Windows products is long and variable, but let me list a few that range from Apple Store and Genius Bar, product resale value, tight integration of hardware and software, better privacy and security. Feel free to add to the list as befits your circumstances.

Apple is in the process of buying back another $100-billion in stock. That act seems shameful and self serving given so many Mac customers have trouble with their keyboards.
Apple could use a little of that money it gives away to make sure products work as expected. Customers are not treated as well as investors.
