    There won't be any more (PRODUCT) RED. Apple is not a charity. They probably just intended to do one product, but due to the unexpected success, they thought they'd try sell them 8GB ones.

    I'd certainly like to see Shuffles in a variety of Colours

    - and a Red one would be nice



    Red iMac - I think that would be horrible - a Black iMac would be cool though!

    After all, by November 15th, it will be the best selling DAP in the market.

    Yeah, I thought it would be $10 for 4gb and say $12 for the 8gb. But between retail of $199 and $249, it's cool, not such a big deal. It's good for a start that Apple got involved in this. And I tells ya a Product[Red] MacBook (but definitely NOT MacBookPro) is likely in the next 6 months either before or after the MacBook is upgraded.

    I've been thinking I'll probably get a new Mac after MacWorld in January, when I get my tax return (and hopefully there are updated models available). My plan was to get a mini, and keep my old Powerbook 12" for when I want to go travelling... but if they put out a (RED) Macbook, I don't think I could resist.

    If true, If they did the 8GB in response to unexpected success, that would be the fastest turnaround to a new electronic product variant that I've ever seen anywhere. I mean, two weeks? Maybe it's possible, but it seems like a stretch too, that would impress me a lot. I think it's more likely they intended to do a two-step roll-out.

    I don't know. I wouldn't have thought it's that hard - one part of the factory makes cases, the other the internals. All you have to do is tell your contracted manufacturer to start putting some 8 GB internals (already being made) into RED cases (already being made), and probably to ramp up the production of RED cases.

    I think there's a little more to it though. There would be some delay in the corporate system realize they have an unexpectedly hot product on their hands, then to decide to go ahead with another variation, and then some distribution delays too.

    I think they would have had to have made the decision after one week of sales. The factories operate close to 24/7, so if a signal went in one week ago to make 8 GB iPod nano REDs, that's just enough time for an initial shipment to arrive yesterday.

    I hear a revolt is underway 'coz they had to push the workers extra hard for such a quick turnaround on the red 8Gigers. A few of these "pre-engraved" models slipped out: 8)

    But really a red 8gb is smart, it'll probably sell very well.

    You're assuming that the primary reason apple is doing this is to make donations and not get massive "feel-good" publicity. If you really want to make a contribution, it doen't have to involve buying a piece of plastic that end up landfill in 2-3 years.



    I find it interesting in some of the other posts that the fanboys still think that Microsoft is more of a corporate "monster" than Apple. And that, somehow, Jobs isn't a corporate money-grabber.

    Nope. You're doing the only ASSuming here. And did you not read the last line of my first response on this thread?



    me: ...and I'd rather donate directly.
