Apple By most counts, they're a hit. But they were intended to woo new users to the fold, yet Mac market share has only budged -- lower, says BusinessWeek.

I work part time at futureshop and I have to say that its very difficult to persuade someone to buy a mac. This happened just a few days ago while I was showing someone a G4 1.0GHZ powerbook

<customer> Wow thats kind of expensive and its only 1GHZ

<me> Actually Ive had people tell me that this performs aswells as an AMD-2500+ which is about 2.1GHZ.

<customer> Oh so are macs mostly for gamers?

<me> Not really, macs dont have that many games. Usually theres a couple of good ones per year but most are only released on PCs.

<customer> Oh

Then he sort of stared at me and asked to see a notebook.
