Blah, blah, blah.   Same old.  WTF are YOU talking about? Nobody is talking about junk for £399.  (But note, they DO sell a Mini for £499 AND an iPad (with screen...heh...) for £399. Pricing, they're losing touch. Only Apple removes a DVD drive and charges you £60 for it. And do we have to get back on the ram prices again? Apple.  Have increasingly been about keeping shareholders happy despite what they say. Lemon Bon Bon.
£471 price difference between the i7 Mini and the entry iMac on £1150?   What's that?   You could get a 27 inch IPS (not from Apple...), keyboard and mouse, SSD 128 gig drive and probably still have some left over for some fish and chips.   No wonder they didn't update the mini with Iris Pro at the same time as iMac...   ...don't want to expose the lie of 'value.'   No wonder Tim has charged Apple with making a more affordable iMac.  Where have they been for the...
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.
