I don't mind plastic.  It's quality plastic.  It is a quality product.   Logically, they'd can the iPod Touch and just add a phone receiver and price it for another £100 at the low end and another £150-ish at the high end.  Children and teens would have a great phone...in alu colours.  The 5C is in some ways bemusing.   The iPod touch is the best designed mobile product they have.  It's slim, beautiful and trumps even the 5S design.  The Touch is light and curved alu...
The rate they're going it should only take a few more revisions and the entry iMac will be in the old G5 tower entry price.   Lemon Bon Bon.
Maybe Apple should push the iMac's price up into Mac Pro territory.  Afterall, they're a premium company, right?   Lemon Bon Bon.
...and if you want the DVD (which used to be included...IN the price...) you have to pay £60+ extra.   Don't be stingy, Apple...put an external in the box.   Apple.  Overpriced for what you get.   Lemon Bon Bon.
 Wriggle all you like. But the iMac used to cost £595 here in the UK.  It now costs £1145 inc VAT.   They now sell a mini without a keyboard or monitor or mouse for nearly that at £500. 'Only Apple.' Lemon Bon Bon.
Just trash the iMac and the mini.   One Pro Can.  Fill it with your specs.  Done.  One studio monitor.  One can with your 'part susan' specs.   Apple can streamline it's desktop that way and broaden it's appeal.  One can.  One monitor.  Configure as you like.   The desktop line has been broken for a long time.   And they wonder why they're slipping in sales?   Look at what they did to the Pro and iMac line over the last several years.  They could have taken...
Yes.  We can hope. Lemon Bon Bon.
 Yes you do. Take the iMac.  It used to cost £799...and even £595 inc VAT in the UK.  If you're Apple you take it and replace it with an entry model of £1145 inc VAT....minus the DVD.  So extra for that...that's £1,210 inc VAT to make up the difference.  That's if you 'happy' with the integrated crappics...extra for that. 'Only Apple.' Lemon Bon Bon.
Production issues?  On the Mac Pro? I'll be surprised if they have. If the last Mac Pro was limping on a presumed 45k in sales...what's the new one going to have if it's the overpriced mini monster many expect? 200K?  At a push? Given the Apple tax inflation on the iMac over two recent revisions...we can only wonder what the Mac Pro will cost. Over at Kool Aid Cupertino (the ones that don't have to worry about affording over priced Apple kit in the current world...
It's probably apathy.  You know the feeling when you go 'beyond hunger?' Lemon Bon BOn.
