Missing data = bad analysis
Price wasn't the only thing that differentiated Apple and Microsoft back in the 90's: software had quite a bit to do with it. Microsoft was able to improve on Windows 3 with Win95 as a stopgap while the long-term WinNT bet played out, while Apple was stuck with an OS that had more in common with Windows 3. The truly amazing thing was how much mileage they were able to get out of an OS with no protected memory; sloppily-written apps like Netscape Navigator made the whole OS look unstable as it locked up all the time. Not that they didn't try their own Win95 trick with "Copeland" but we all know how that turned out: they had to look outside the company for a new OS to save their bacon, resulting in the return of Mr. Jobs.
Now the tables are turned. NextStep has been leveraged into an incredibly flexible platform running on desktops, phones and tablets and allowing for accelerated innovation and great stability. Microsoft is still trying to catch up, and Android is playing the "good enough" card. Ignoring the software in the equation makes this analyst's opinion worth about as much as the paper it's printed on.
