We've shown you that over 95% of desktops sold are towers,
This is not because towers and AIO have had an equal opportunity in the consumer market where consumers chose towers. Part of the reason is because AIO are not widely available. AIO are all most people need and don't know they are an option. Partly this is because enterprise wants towers that are easy to upgrade. Enterprise buys more towers than consumers so that is what is mostly provided.
Are you really surprised these computers did not set the AIO sales ablaze?
Oh come on, you expect some obscure blog to get every friggin computer user to read his blog and go to the trouble of registering with digg so they can digg the article. I'd say the one blog that had over 4 thousand diggs is pretty good evidence of a vastly greater size market. It wasn't posted on Cnet for crying out loud.
I'd say that this article being on some obscure blog instead on larger media like CNET or PCWorld shows this is not a big issue.
If you haven't noticed, you both are in the minority here. And this is on an Apple centric website.
We are only the minority on a thread of a small group that really want an xMac. Most people around AI don't post on this thread because they don't care.
And no desktop sales aren't falling off a cliff, this is a lame argument and very tiresome, desktop sales still represent a huge market, bigger than huge, it is only that latops sales are increasing faster than desktop sales.
Its not a lame argument, its fact. The problem is that it does not support your argument for an xMac. Laptops surpassed desktops two years ago. Laptop sales are only pulling further and further ahead of desktop sales.
