Nothing to see here folks except another series of Apple paperweights.
Best advice is to load up on AAPL today as it is still in the teens. A window of opportunity to let AAPL buy your next system for you. I've been accumulating Apple stock for just over two years now in anticipation of this. Of course I was anticipating a Motorola G5 in '02 when I started. My how things have changed, overnight you might say.
