Well, your comment is part right but part wrong as well. The part that is right, is that on paper, yes, many times, competitors have better specs than on Apple devices. This can be seen with iPads, iPhones, etc.
However, the part wrong is that they charge more for less. Although the specs don't line up many times and seem to be on the weak side, the overall user experience is usually enhanced beyond that of the competitors. With Apple, efficiency, simplicity, superior design and infrastructure yields advantages beyond that of simple paper specs. This is what the other manufacturers don't get. Slap the best parts on the market in a box design, slap a logo on it, and out the door it goes. This is the philosophy of most computer companies.
The real tragedy is that companies like Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Sony, etc., who have been producing LCD's for many years, have not picked up on this new patented idea to LCD picture quality. Either that, or they don't market it. I'll pick the former. Its called complacency in the marketplace. You just keep churning the same garbage out year after year with a fresh marketing label and continue to collect until a company like Apple comes along and turns you upside down with new ideas and fresh technology.
