Demand, and possibly quality issues, have caused Apple to delay shipments of the bestselling new 27-inch iMac (right) 3 weeks.  (Source: Apple)

It doesn't imply anything. It demonstrates a fundamental lack of cognitive thinking by the speaker.

PCs are universally interchangeable - hence, one enormous reason why the world runs on PCs. To make any meaningful statement such as this, you would have to tabulate the sales of ALL the PCs sold from every brand, mom & pop shop, and BYO builder and compare that to the sale of this iMac.

...and then you'd realize that Apple is still irrelevant.

4% marketshare does not a news-worthy company make.

4% marketshare isn't news-worthy? Well I guess you had better tell the rest of the world that. Seems that quite a few people including Anand himself like those sexy AL desktops, and their iPhones and the like. Are any of them 'bargains'? Absolutely not. But so what. It is about inspiration.

I've built more PCs then most of the 'kids' on this forum. Built my first in 91'. In the early days it was about saving money. Now it is about getting exactly what I want. My latest in a beautiful Antec Mini p180 is taking shape on the desk next to me. They are usually powerful and great bang for the buck. Great tools that I use every day. But I've owned a few Macs as well. Currently I use a unibody Macbook Pro as my laptop of choice after years of Toshibas then ThinkPads. It was relatively expensive, but worth every penny. It is just a joy to use and frankly is probably the coolest looking piece of tech I have every owned. It comes down to how you feel about your individual purchase. If getting a bargain at walmart makes you feel good, great. If an expensive tailored suit inspires makes you feel good, more power to you. Regardless of what you may believe, most Mac users started on PCs, usually in school or from hand-me-downs. They make the choice to spend the coin for today's Macs, and usually love them, other then the cost.

I've worked hard (on a PC primarily!) and can afford to indulge myself a bit. Traded in a much loved Jetta for a little 'inspiration' from BMW recently. Does that make me stupid or a bad guy? Could I have gotten 'more' for my money? Depends on your definition of 'more'. Maybe money is everything to you and you are inspired by the almighty bargain. But how many Hyundai Accents have you seen on the cover of magazines or in the news lately?

In the meantime the world awaits what inspirational and undoubtably expensive device that poor little low marketshare company will introduce next week. How stupid we all must be......
