Hey, hey! This is the internet. Stop citing your information and challenging people to verify it.

Even the most rabid fanboi in his wildest dreams wouldn't believe this. Why publish such nonsense.

Agreed. They do deserve to be scapegoated.

Wouldn't they rather be 100% of the billion dollar PC category?

Quite simply they just want it to work and will pay that little extra (because it is a little) to get that peace of mind.

You're making my argument. You should reread my post.

Because some people might be willing to put their money where their mouth is.

If they have money, that is?

Sounds like someone drank too much tea this morning.

Very true... on all counts.

With the iPad already decimating the bland, generic PC and netbook offerings in the sub $1000 category, data already shows the Mac capturing a greater share of the premium market.

Microsoft and Google aren't going to close up shop. But in order for Apple to continue showing period over period growth, they don't need to. Apple just needs to continue doing what it's doing now: building innovative products and keeping the perception of luxury in the minds of potential consumers. It seems that people buy non Apple products because they need a utilitarian device - in car speak, a "grocery getter". But when they buy Apple products, they tend to think of them with a sense of pride - more like a Mercedes or Jaguar. At least that's the perception that I get when I visit various forums. The days of "Dude, I'm gettin' a Dell!" are over and done. Unlike most of the others, Apple has a brand that is worth quite a lot just in itself... because that brand has a draw.
If two people always agree, then one of them is redundant.
