Market Share is not THE reason why there are fewer hackers etc going after Macs. it's that the OS is based on a unix/linux structure. pain in the ass to program a virus for.
Yeah, maybe they dropped the prices of their laptops, but that still doesnt reduce the price of replacement parts, or the cost to get an Apple serviced. That is why a business will never use all Apples.
there are lots of companies that use all Macs. Heck the ad company that made the Laptop campaign is a known "Mac House"
Anyways, if you haven't figured it out, Apple over-charges for sub-par products, then tells everyone you have to have one to be cool, ie iPod, the airbook, or MacBook Pro. For every single one of those, there is a cheaper version with better features and functions from a different company. People need to wake-up and learn to think for themselves.
same game the luxury car companies play. so why is Apple blasted so much for it. Often simply because it is Apple

none. it was likely scripted. they might claim off of interviews or paper surveys. but it was not off the cuff anymore than Big Brother et al don't have writers tweaking things to make a hot story for the air

depends on the model she was looking at. I think the least expensive 15" did only have 2 GB at that time.

No. but it would be the first volley towards one. and it would make Apple look better. "Hey we gave them too chances to fix this and they refused. Now we want the courts to make them fix it, in accordance with laws A, B and C. Thank you."
