I think Apple would be wise to have at least one sub-$1000 laptop.

Their laptops are good and popular, it wouldn't make sense to price themselves out of the market. I know they don't want to sell crap, but I'm sure they can make a fine MacBook for less than $1000 or even $900.

Considering the money they make with their iOS devices, I would strain the profit margins of MacBooks to gain market share. They can get some money back from app store sales anyway.

iMac sales are ever increasing, but at that rate it still will take 2 billion years to get a significant marketshare. They can expand OS X market share using MacBooks, if they can offer them at a low price.
