iMacs, nothing but aesthetically pleasing. - Page 2

post #41 of 60
And we're actually having an extended conversation with a witless troll because?

Stop this horror show and lock it. The next person besides the witless troll (who can't be expected to know any better, being entirely and utterly witless) who posts in this thread has to deal with Guybrush Threepwood's sister.

You have been warned.

Which company has never kept a product secret until the day of launch?

Thank you.

Interesting the choice not to respond to various points.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Dude! He's a witless troll! There are no "points". His every response is going to amount to "Macs teh suxor lol." Why on earth would you want to engage this?

Very true, he is a troll.

He's on my ignore list, but I still receive the mailings. Wish they could block mailings about posts by people on that list.

This thread should be locked.

I'm enjoying this troll.

If what you're after is a video card, then don't buy an iMac. I don't see why this is so hard for you to grasp.

Your assessment of the business strategies of the major PC vendors is whimsical at best... "expansion phase?" The Windows and Linux PC market is heavily commoditized, which means that it's hard for participants in it to make good profits. That's why their stocks are in the doldrums. If these guys are trying to expand their markets, the way Apple has, they're doing a lousy job at it. In fact, the only PC company to successfully expand its markets has been Apple. You can argue that as a result of this market expansion the iMac has not been engineered as a vanilla, desktop PC with a replaceable video card, but it's not going to get you anywhere. There are enough iMac sales to keep it going as a product. If iMac buyers are idiots, that's just something you'll have to live with; there's a very small chance that after growing out of teenager-dom, getting a degree, and making it happen in the business world for many years, you'll be in a place to make business decisions that may impact markets. By that time the PC market may not even exist, much less the iMac.

What's more interesting is that Apple makes more profit on an iPod sale than Dell or HP do on an average PC sale. Large market share is only good if there's large profit, too.

Even if iMacs were all that great, I wouldnt want to buy a computer from a dishonest company (they are currently being sued for lying). It is all aesthetic psychology, iMac is simply using fancy appearance to get us to buy there overpriced product.

You are so right. Don't buy one. Gateway's are nice and you don't have to worry about them being "pretty".
