MacBook seeing better response than MacBook Pro

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
More than half of the specialist resellers recently surveyed by PiperJaffray said they are seeing initial demand for Apple Computer's new MacBook that is greater than the interest they saw with the MacBook Pro when it started shipping in February.

Additionally, almost all of the specialists said initial demand for the chic consumer notebook has been similar or better to what they had been expecting prior to the product launch, analyst Gene Munster said. He believes pent-up demand for the new model has been the primary force behind strong sales.

"Several Apple specialist resellers indicated that they had been telling their customers not to buy iBooks over the last few months prior to the MacBook launch," Munster wrote in a note to clients. "These specialist stores are now seeing the result of this advice come back to them as pent-up demand."

In general, Apple resellers indicated that they are seeing stronger Mac sales during the current (June) quarter than they did during the March quarter. On the other hand, about half of the specialists said they feel iPod demand has slowed over the past two months, despite a small "bounce" in May and June due to graduation gift-giving.

"Our checks [...] reinforce our initial thesis on the June quarter, which assumes that lower-than-expected iPods will be offset by strong Mac sales that result from full availability of the MacBook Pro and the launch of the MacBook," Munster wrote. However, he cautioned that iPod numbers could fall below Wall Street's consensus.

Nevertheless, the analyst expects the Street will shift its focus to Apple's September quarter over the next few weeks. According to Munster, the company appears set for a "breakout" September quarter due to a number of factors such as the educational buying season, full product availability, Boot Camp and the new "switcher" ad campaign.

The analyst maintains a Outperform rating on Apple shares with a price target of $99.

People are holding out for the next iPod's, and the computers will get a rev. around then too. Woot!

Well, the market falls. The market rises. The current state is not permanent. As long as Apple finds ways to innovate and profit, it can someday hit $99.

The MB is a great deal. Most people are finding that don't necessarily need a huge LCD screen and the discrete graphics don't impress everyone either.

I think Apple should think about developing a dock for the MBP with accessories for this enviroment. This is where PC laptop vendors begin to differentiate their product. I love taking my HP laptop to work and docking the sucker in a few milliseconds. Apple could add some nice touches here.

Company network and my monitors. In fact HP just came out with a Dock that has a NAS (160GB) integrated and two of the USB ports are accessible over the network for printing.

What I'd love to see a way of running triple head because my dock doesn't seem to like running the DVI and VGA ports simultaneously.

I remember how cool the duo dock days were. Apple was ahead of its time then.

From what I've seen docking stations are used for functionality not built into the laptop.

The MacBook has the ability to be plugged into a monitor and onto a network. You can also plug a full sized keyboard and mouse to a MacBook and it will work fine.

Connected to monitor,keyboard, and mouse the Macbook lid can be closed and used the same as a desktop.

What more does a docking station do?

No offense, but this guy doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. The dock model that PC vendors use to "differentiate their product" is really the way they try to keep up with Apple's size and battery life-they remove all the functions except motherboard and harddrive and sell their computer as being sooo light and thin. Then you find out that the dock you have to attach it to in order to play a CD or connect to a network adds an inch and a half (at least; I've seen much worse!) and is heavy and bulky enough to render the "ultra-portable" unportable. Apple has a different and I believe superior strategy of creating laptop that are full-featured (what can reasonably be expected from a laptop of course) and balancing that goal with the goal of keeping it within the realms of portability.

By the way, kudos to Sony who are also catching on to this concept; it's about time!!

I think that for most customers, the MacBook is a much better value than the MacBook Pro. I was pleasantly surprised that the MB uses Core Duo chips like the MBP, even if they are a bit slower. (Rumors said they might use Core Solo.)

One thing that might have convinced me to get a PowerMac instead of an iBook was the fact that the PB could do extended desktops (dual monitors), but the iBook couldn't. The concern doesn't exist with the new laptops.

The initial results have shown that the integrated graphics aren't a big problem unless you are into intense graphics apps or gaming. I'm interested to see how the new features that are rumored to be coming in Leopard are affected by integrated vs dedicated graphics.

"No offense", but I feel the same about you.

I will sorely miss the dock when I transition from Dell to a MBP. With the Dell I can connect to my twin 24" monitors, USB hub (keyboard, mouse, USB keys, 3 DOF controller, etc), power and network easily. Slide into dock, hit the on button. Done.

With the MBP that's 5 connections (well 4 since I can't run dual 24" WS monitors) I need to make or unmake every time I want to go from "mobile" to "docked" or vice versa. That's more opportunities to break a connector somewhere.

My Dell dock also came with 2 PCI slots I ended up never needing but it was nice to know if I needed something odd they were available. I occasionally have the need for sync-serial cards but always had a desktop available for that.

You sound like you're talking of the old Sony dockers used to provide CD, Floppy, and extra connectors because they wouldn't fit on the laptop itself. What I believe hmurchison is talking about now is a box to plug into that will save having to plug and unplug 3, 4, 5, 9 cables into the laptop every day.

The reality on the PC side is that both types of docks are prevelant.

Need to use an optical drive with your ThinkPad X series? You've got the little portable-dock thing that snaps on the bottom. For laptops that already have stuff like that built-in, like our ThinkPad T43, you can get a more desktop-oriented dock that provides all the legacy ports, DVI out, more USB ports, &. &c. The dock makes it a lot easier to just pick up the laptop and go without futzing around with disconnecting 7-8 cables individually.

Those Bookendz docks don't even compare in terms of convenience and functionality.

I personally am sick and tired of reading what PiperJaffray has to say on AppleInsider. Piper is simply piping off to itself because during the entire time it has maintained that ridiculous $99 price target, AAPL has fallen week after week. One must also keep in mind that most every other legitimate stock brokerage out there has a significantly lower price target for AAPL. Read the news about Apple sales in light of Wall Street expectations and you can see why. Apple is not in bad shape, but it's now where close to $99 -- any bum on the street can tell you that. One wonders where PiperJaffray finds its "analysts"! I therefore think AppleInsider should either stop writing articles about PiperJaffray statements, or at least post a disclaimer after stating something to the effect of: "Yeah, right!"

JDW - You might want to wait a while before really getting into your "I told you so!" A lot of people (myself included) are waiting for Leopard's release before buying their next Mac. Between that and the next gen iPod, I'd expect Apple sales to take a big boost next year. Patience, man!

I agree. How the Thinkpads and Sony's and other companies tend to market is

Port Replicator- One easy connection but no more ports than what came standard on the laptop.

Dock- Somewhere you're going to get extra functionality. Maybe another optical bay or hard drive bay or modular components. My dock has 4 more USB so it acts as a hub. I can add a second optical as well if I had an ultralight portable with no internal drive.

I'm keenly interested in the new 3-1 NAS with a 160Gb drive just because it comes with backup software and the ability to store data that I normally don't need when i'm mobile.

A few months ago I would have agreed that docks are overpriced but after living with my laptop it's nice to make one connection/disconnection. The NAS dock has a SATA 160GB 3.5" drive so I could see myself adding a larger drive as long as the controller permits it which it should.

Silencio- I'd say our attach rate for docks and Thinkpads is %25-33 percent unless you're talking about a huge rollout. People do love the simplicity of a dock.

None taken we're all sharing our opinions here. I think a subnotebook dock option is a must. However even full featured laptops benefit from advanced docks with more functionality.

This report only reenforces my belief that MBPs are overpriced and that they will get merom chips in August as soon as they are available.

Edit. The 15 in MBPs are the model that really is overpriced.

The company is over valued. As apple is now, with their current volumes, I would say that a $50/share is a good price, anything above that is just gravy untill they lock in at least a 5% PC marketshare.

The MacBook Pro enclosures are closely based on their previous PowerBook counterparts, most likely because they needed to switch them over to Intel qucikly. I'll bet they get a new latchless design like the MacBooks for the transition to the Merom chips.

I have been debating whether to buy a 15" MBP now or wait a while. Would Merom chips provide anything more than the obvious speed bump?

The key purpose of a docking station in business is generally to reduce the number of cables that you have to plug and unplug from your laptop on a daily basis. Heck, even Apple offered a dock at one point in the past (Powerbook Duo + Duo dock).

Speed increase of 20% at same ghz(compared to ICD) and merom is planned to clock a little higher.

The alternative view is that at this particular point in time, the MacBook is an extraordinary value. Many speculated that the MB would only get a Core Solo or perhaps only one high end model with the Core Duo.

I was wondering about the history of the relationship between the PowerBooks and iBooks in terms of processor and clock speed so I pulled this info from Mactracker.app:

PowerBook (Jan 2001) 400/500 MHz G4
ibook (May 2001) 500 MHz G3

iBook; 12 inch (Oct 2001) 500/600 MHz G3
iBook; 14 inch (Oct 2001) 600 MHz G3
PowerBook; GigE (Oct 2001) 550/667 MHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (May 2002) 600/700 MHz G3
iBook; 14 inch (May 2002) 700 MHz G3
PowerBook; DVI (April 2002) 667/800 MHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (Nov 2002) 700/800 MHz G3
iBook; 14 inch (Nov 2001) 800 MHz G3
PowerBook; (Nov 2002) 867 MHz / 1.0 GHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (Apr 2003) 800/900 MHz G3
iBook; 14 inch (Apr 2003) 900 MHz G3
PowerBook; 12 inch (Jan 2003) 867 G4
PowerBook; 17 inch (Jan/Mar 2003) 1.0 GHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (Oct 2003) 800 MHz G4
iBook; 14 inch (Oct 2003) 933MHz / 1.0 GHz G4
PowerBook; 12 inch (Sep 2003) 1.0 GHz G4
PowerBook; 15 inch (Sep 2003) 1.0 / 1.25 GHz G4
PowerBook; 17 inch (Sep 2003) 1.33 GHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (Apr 2004) 1.0 GHz G4
iBook; 14 inch (Apr 2004) 1.0/1.2 GHz G4
PowerBook; 12 inch (Apr 2004) 1.33 GHz G4
PowerBook; 15 inch (Apr 2004) 1.33 / 1.5 GHz G4
PowerBook; 17 inch (Apr 2004) 1.5 GHz G4

PowerBook; 12 inch (Jan 2005) 1.5 GHz G4
PowerBook; 15 inch (Jan 2005) 1.5 / 1.67 GHz G4
PowerBook; 17 inch (Jan 2005) 1.67 GHz G4

iBook; 12 inch (Jul 2005) 1.33 GHz G4
iBook; 14 inch (Jul 2005) 1.42 GHz G4

PowerBook; 15 inch (Oct 2005) 1.67 GHz G4
PowerBook; 17 inch (Jan 2005) 1.67 GHz G4

The MacBook is as close to the MacBook Pro in terms of processor performance as it will probably get. It will be interesting to see if the gap widens. I'm betting it will: MBP will get Merom ASAP and MB will hang back with some incremental speed bumps to lengthen the life of the Core Duo in MB's.

I'm wanting a new PB... er... MBP badly and I'm VERY tempted to wait for the next version. New case design??

What it tells me is that most people don't need expansion slots, discreet graphics, full DVI out ports, and Firewire 800. I don't think Merom will make much difference.

I agree that most users don't need such things and are well served by the current MacBook. However in order to sell a 'premium' product you need to distinguish it from the ordinary. Having discreet graphics, additional ports and Merom will help. This assumes that MAcbook keeps ICD which I think it will.

as far as a dock, now with BT much of the need for those extra ports is now wireless. i have mine set up with one cable for printing, but with BT that can be "gone", keyboard, mouse..BT, so now its second monitor, that you have to plug in, but i don't use it. so what would the dock help?? maybe a parallel HD for backup and a second optical drive. are they worth the "plug and unplug" thing. for me with a well organized desk, use of BT the most i would have to "plug" is maybe one firewire for a backup HD, but you can daisy chain that HD to my optical drive. well now that's down to one plug......gooooood.

Unless there's a integrated interface on the laptop you can't make a dock or port replicator really worth using. Its something Apple needs to design into their laptops and not a 3rd party kind of thing.

In any case I'd say your experience is limited. Nearly every engineer I know has dual head monitors hooked to their laptops when docked. The screen real estate is a cheap productivity multiplier. The network over 100BaseT is much faster than any wireless (which is handy for large files).

Those things alone are 4 connections (power, 2 x DVI, network) and ignoring USB hub and other uses of a dock. I fortunately also have a 30" monitor in my office so I'll likely switch from 2x24 to 1x30. Still not the same though since I occasionally will rotate one of the two monitors to see more lines of code in portait vs landscape while my app is running in the other window.

I'm sitting here in my corporate office with a Dell D800 laptop snapped into a dock. The dock allows all my desktop peripherals - keyboard, trackball, speakers, network, monitors - to be attached and detached in a quick and simple way. The dock also has a PCI slot that I've stuck an old VGA graphics card in to give me dual monitors.

I believe every laptop my company buys comes with a dock - which = more $$$ for the vendor.

I agree that Apple is missing out in the dock area.

I suppose Apple sees it differently. If you build all of this functionality into the laptop you don't need to the dock. I can see its usefulness if you want to carry your laptop between home and work and use it like a desktop on a daily basis.

I can't link you to a $600 core duo laptop but I can get you into a 15 in Dell with a graphics card for at least $500 less than a MBP. They aren't identicle specs but close.

I wished I shared your optimism. But news about the US economy of late doesn't indicate that even a large boost in Mac sales would push AAPL toward the $99 mark. I guess I would just like to read a detailed analysis on AppleInsider, presented by PiperJaffray, regarding why it feels so strongly that AAPL will reach $99. With all the other brokerages reducing their price targets on AAPL, why is PiperJaffray alone in maintaining this $99 mark? Am I alone in being suspicious of this? That's why I think these continued reports from PiperJaffray are bringing down the credability of AppleInsider as a whole.
