    Because they're worth every penny in comparison.

    Mac are designed for professional users, people who use big software packages such as Adobe Creative suits products like Photoshop and After Effect, Or Autodesk's 3D Studio Max.
    Although all of these software packages are available in PC, it is proved that they function better in Mac.
    Also because Mac are designed for professionals, they contain high performance hardware, for instance I had a Mac that had 6 GB of Ram and double ATI HD4850 Graphics cards mounted in it.

    Mostly because of stylish look and high performance hardware. You are getting all in one package with great look and the best customer support. Of course, it will cost more than PC.

    Other than what Jeneriodan has touched on, they're also considered as the elitist product to have - which is why they cost more. I know people may argue "it's for business", but a damn few rich eccentrics have them and don't touch them.

    Apple products have a non comparable excellence in design of both software and hardware. In both they are exceptional. Naturally on pursuing this cost also increases

    Because Mac's are tailored for the elite class to maintain bragging rights.  They are better in the minds of those who swear by them because what they have must be better than what everybody else has.

    The main reason for the expense is the lack of competition.  Apple has maintained an environment of proprietary design and maintenance so few third-party products are available.  You buy Apple compatable products from Apple.
