quote: LOL, so you think Apple will reverse the trend of declining marketshare over the past 10 years and triple growth? Even Steve Jobs doent think that, and he's totally insane.
quote: the value proposition for Vista is not really understood yet by consumers
quote: Could you please elaborate more on that "value proposition"?
quote: so you think Apple will reverse the trend of declining marketshare over the past 10 years and triple growth?
quote: They now have less than 3% global market share of all personal computers sold.
quote: And they achieved this near oblivion how?
quote: By continuing to launch superior products at a competitive price points?
quote: you MAC clones crack me up
quote: 2 roughly equally specced laptops
quote: Apple are going to start hitting the point where, although they are selling more laptops, and possibly the real number of people buying them is growing as fast as before, it certainly won't continue doubling each year.
quote: Seriously, who buys a computer with a base cost of $3200USD that only has 250GB HD, 512MB of RAM, and a 6600 video card
quote: It is arguably more secure because, IMO OSX has a very small market share compared to the likes of MS, so they arent target as much
quote: I do agree the Jorbs and his crew do a good job of keeping us on the edge of our seat sometimes, at somepoint that will get old.
quote: Theres nothing like spending $1000+ on a computer that gets a whole new redesign every other year, or sooner. That will get old, albiet down the road.
quote: Not to mention, later this year they are likely to have a dual quad... which is just nutsy *drools*, and SUPER insanely expensive.

quote: sherman, you're getting in the same old trap again and again - you compare modern desktop Wintels with ancient PowerPC Macs. When are you going to stop falling in the same manhole? Can't you see current Intel iMacs are VERY different both price-wise and feature-wise from old museum PPC PowerMacs? I don't even understand why you bother posting here comparing some museum Apple computers with modern Intel PCs - yeah, I CAN TOO compare Win 3.1 with Mac OS X 10.4.7 and you know what? Win 3.1 SUCKS! You don't buy my argument of comparing old technology to new one? THEN PLEASE DON'T USE SAME ARGUMENT YOURSELF, would you pleeaase??!
quote: Those specs were still for shit when the Quad was released. Not enough hardware for the price, thats all im saying.
