Apple With the economy in decline, many fear that the one company to take the financial blow would be Apple. The company focusses on the higher end of the market (at least in price), and with many people having less and less money to spend, as well as facing insecure financial prospects, people may decide to choose for a cheaper, non-Apple computer. Piper Jaffray, an Apple-friendly analyst firm, has projected that the Cupertino company is about to face a decline in year-over-year Mac sales; for the first time in six years.

Netbooks are nice but...

I have said elsewhere there are many people like me that have bad eyesight and a netbook is unusable. I currently have and use a 12 ultraportable for traveling and that is the minimum that works for me. I can't use a netbook for more than half an hour without getting a headache so what good is a 8 hour battery life on it. No netbooks are nice and they are not going away but they are not for everyone at least not yet.
