Editorial Bob Cringeley makes a bold statement in a blog post responding to Apple's iCloud announcement: "Jobs is going to sacrifice the Macintosh in order to kill Windows." He says, "The incumbent platform today is Windows because it is in Windows machines that nearly all of our data and our ability to use that data have been trapped. But the Apple announcement changes all that. Suddenly the competition isn't about platforms at all, but about data, with that data being crunched on a variety of platforms through the use of cheap downloaded apps."

You might have an issue with your memory. Certain Apple devices are affordable... But I was replying to your own commnnt:
[quote]affordable ecosystem for consumers[/quote]
That is where you are dead wrong. The ecosystem is not affordable. Because the Apple ecosystem has things as overpriced routers, overpriced H/W components and so on... And if you want the whole "ecosystem" you get to a point where your setup is too expensive(expensive is an antonym to affordable)
