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.

Surely it ought to be enough to bring out a new model every three years or so? Is there really enough progress in hardware design in a year to justify new models?

In short, yes. I'm in the same boat. I want a powerbook, but I dont' want to by until they update them. Why? In PC land, new components come out, and older components drop in price quickly. With Apple, they are price competitive with PCs, *when they come out*, but after 7 months, your paying top dollar for components which cost a LOT less in PC land.

It's the principle really. I don't want to be ripped off like that.
