Or should the 5% USA "blip" focus on maintaining its high quality lifestyle which that 40% in India and China can only dream of?

Ouch! That hurt! But I think you explained the marketshare thing very well.

Odd world here.

Back spinning your ban? Hahahaha, You guys are so funny sometimes.

Perhaps you are confusing US Market share with world wide market share?

The current 13" is weak due to Intel again. The Ivy Bridge one shouldn't be too bad but I'd say the 6750M model is plenty and it will play Crysis on medium-high quality. Even the latest games like Battlefield 3:

100% in 1998, sure.

Did Apple ever have 100% of the AIO market when you count all price ranges? I don't think they did.

Did anyone else make all-in-ones in 1998? Or something you'd even call an 'all-in-one'? Those Internet kiosks at hotels and what have you don't count.

eMachines came out with the ill-fated eOne in 1999.
Before that there were a plethora of AIOs. One such machine is the Commodore PET 2001 which seems to have been designed on set of the original BSG.

Most AIOs are more aptly called "suitcase computers" which evolved into the notebook computers we know today, but they are by definition all-in-ones and had to be used on desktops. Even though they offered a modicum of portability they were not notebooks or laptop computers.

These two machines not only predate the iMac but also predate Mac as a whole.

Which led to their bankruptcy and eventual purchase by a company that has since gone bankrupt and been purchased itself.

The moral there is: don't steal from Apple.

Oh, well, then ENIAC was an all-in-one if we're going by that requirement.

It's not so much that the processor in the mini isn't up to the task. It is that the case of the mini doesn't have the room inside of it for what people want and need to use. Just because we dislike the monitor being stuck to the computer on the iMac doesn't mean that we want a bunch of external devices hooked up to a mini.

It's all about a mid sized case with internal room and a separate monitor that makes the mini not enough and the Mac Pro too much.
