Analyst have been saying that about Apple for decades.   In the Mac market before the Mac Mini launched analysts were buzzing with rumors and predictions of a low cost Mac to compete with the bottom of the barrel PCs. Apple responded with a $500 machine that didn't come "bundled" with anything.   Last year, analyst said Apple MUST compete with the...
