The problem is that Macs last so long, compared to other computers... while I've had 2 Macs (purchased new) in the last 9 years I purchased 4 PCs (now I ain't buyin' any more PCs). So, In my case, and in others that I've been exposed to, Mac owners upgrade about half the time PC users do... Another example of this is in the publishing industry where a lot of users are still are on OS9 et al. So while people say that there PC will last 'a few years, they're replacing every 1.5-2 years... not with a Mac... Oh, and I still use my ol'PowerComputing150 (G3 card) & Lombard Powerbook (1999)
