True. The iMac gets most of the desktop sales so they force you to buy the monitor too.  Extra profit. The iMac has gone from being a value cosumer machine to a rip off. I say that as a top end iMac owner. If they could make a profit on it at £699 with integrated and DVD player...they've ass reaming it at £1150 with no DVD player and still Integrated crappics for over a 1k.  Shame.  SHAME. They could add a decent gpu or Iris Pro to the top end Mini to keep Winter and Dave...
Apple are also pulling that kind of sh** with the Mac Pro.  For an entry price of £2500 I want my goddamn k/b, mouse and an IPS display.   They're playing the 'brand' game more than ever.   What next...we're so cool you pay extra for the box?   Lemon Bon Bon.
 Intriguing sign of the times as iOS and OS X updates blur.  Another two years of that type of progress, and where will we be?  Food for thought. As for the volume argument.  Saying Apple need to sell 'x' to make up for potential price cuts is the same now as it was when they sold 1 million units.  You could apply the opposite logic and say now they're selling way more...the cost of components (which low volume was used as argument against such cuts...) makes a rational...
Apple and stingy?   Yes.  Terribly so since 2008 where they have shamelessly upped the price of entry iMac with integrated crappies from £695 to...   £1150 is it?   A £450 price rise.  Plus £60 for the DVD player.  That's £500.  (The latter...is a lot of money in the UK.)   Apple made the entry iMac too expensive.     Put Iris Pro in the top end Mini.  Would you buy a low end iMac?  No.   Lemon Bon Bon.
M$'s office hedge money ;) is under threat, at last.  The tanks are on their lawn.  This has been coming for a long time.   In the next year, iWorks is going to grow with the new 64 bit iOS platform (which really is just a Mac at its heart...) and M$ will have it all on to counter a threat that amounts to hundreds of millions of iOS devices, iPads, iPhones (and who knows what else...) and 20 million more Macs.  (What we at in the next year?  Nearly a 100 million user...
Geeze, where do they get Greens like you from? Anything that you could do in the old version of Pages you STILL can because it's STILL there on your computer.   They haven't removed anything from the new version.  (Vs it not being feature complete.  'Yet.')  They haven't been taken away.  They didn't make it for the launch of the new version of Pages (5).  The features are there in in the previous version if you still need them now.  The features will be added over time in...
Knee jerk over reaction by some people.  A disaster would be the US dollar collapsing in the next 2-5 years... What Patsu said. Lemon Bon Bon.
Add in a bigger iPhone...   and a 13 incher iPad....   AND A MORE AFFORDABLE iMAC for the LOVE OF GOD.   Lemon Bon Bon.
Business will just invest in one eco-system.  That works.   Across iPhone.  iPad.  (There's 200 million in sales nearly next year, just there!)  That's some pressure from users to bring in their own kit!   And there's the Mac.   All of it.  iCloud.   The App store.   All of it.   Just works.  All connected.  No extra training.  Simple.   Whether you are on iPhone, iPad or Mac.  It just is the 'Mac' experience.   All Apple have to do is keep going, keep...
Me too. M$ are between a rock and the hard place. iPad is killing them and surface in hardware.  Now iWorks is going to put the boot in.   Adding to the crown jewels of Apple's business.  The ecosystem.   Add in that OS X now costs nothing?  That's another layer of money that business now don't have to pay for.  (If only Apple would make their Mac hardware just that bit cheaper...they used to!!!)   Lemon  Bon Bon.
