Geez Al, you totally missed the point mr Big was trying to make.

Please ask somebody to explaing to you what a niche market means.

Alternative and/or niche platforms are not ment for an all-round solution for a typical home user who uses the computer for web-browsing, e-mail and word processing. The niche device is a niche device for a reason, and the potential customer buys it BECAUSE it's a niche device.

The niche device delivers something that a mainstream device doesen't, and a potential niche customer is willing to pay for it. Niche markets are NOT aimed primarly at people who want a easy-to-use all-round computer.

I know it might be difficult for you to understand, but everybody doesen't use their computer for the same things as yourself. People have different needs and they are willing to pay accordingly.

You price comparsions make as much sense as comparing the price-feature relation between a car and a motorcycle.
