Macs are not too expensive, are they?

I am reading review after review about the new Mac mini, and they’re generally positive with one caveat: At $799, it’s supposedly too expensive.  May I point out that these same websites give great reviews to the iPhone XR, saying what a super deal it is for $749.  So, you’re saying a full-powered desktop computer that’s only $50 more than the “great deal” iPhone XR is somehow too expensive?
