It really doesn't matter what Apple's new product(s) will be if, their Marketing remains as bad as it has been.
Yes, Apple just opened a brand new store in Buffalo, NY but, they have been discontinued at Sears. That's about 5 stores in this area.
So, that 5 less places one of the companies, I own stock in, will be selling their products. Oh, Joy!
George Eastman had a great idea when he Marketed the Brownie camera... He gave it away at a very low cost because, he knew, he would make a profit later.
In the Marketplace Apple's have always been overpriced for, the most part. This company is being undercut on prices and, outsold in product. Now, even their Educational line of products is endangered by overpricing. Apple left the door open to have Dell walk right in and start grabbing Marketshares.
So, lets say Apple comes out with a new iMac G4 Superdrive 1.5Ghz but, they price it at $3499.00 they will make a profit per unit but, will not sell many units.
I think the time has come for Apple to "Really" cut prices not by a mere $100.00 per unit. If Apple's continues to price themselfs out of the Market, they will make a profit per unit but, won't sell too many of them....Joe
P.S. This ol' 300mhz G3 Tangerine i-Book works just fine, thank you.
