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.

Theyve been saying apple is dying for years. Guess not. lol. The fact that their stores generate profit is good enough for apple.

I laughed at the thought the author said the price wars would affect apple. Here let me take a look at the ipod mini. for 50$ more you can get how many more gigs of space? 11? yet the ipod mini is selling. Hmm maybe its this coolness fact that dell just doesnt have, maybe its the brand who knows, but it sure aint the price.

What is wierd people time and again think apple is trying to compete with the PC market. They dont care how many people have apple computers as long as they are profitable in some way which they seem to be. Besides a cheap white box can only last so long compared to an engineered mac. Lets face it, how many people can brag(besides the ones with water cooled systems) that their computer needs no fan, or the interior design which in the g5s, and g4s are really nicely organized. With apple its style and quality(though they are prone to make mistakes like the problem they had with some ibook motherboards) They are generally better and last longer than a PC plus they have a good os. are some people willing or can afford a mac yes? are most? no. does apple care? again no cause they got people who will come to them because its Apple
