RE:I know trolls shouldn't be fed but...
lets see how all the config options offered by Sony etc pan out over the next year or so, shall we.
Already the phone makers have realised that they have too many offerings making the choice confusing, in light of Apples single offering.
Same will apply to PC's in the current economy... the logistics of all the offerings and the stock costs and multiple production line configs etc become a noose around your neck.
and relating to OSx on non-macs, even though i would love to see it, i fully understand Apples stance.its their product, they decide where to sell it and on what device.. their decision. I'd prob do the same in their position... profitable company with big cash pile.. seems to be working. And yes, i am capitalist, not a tree hugging hippy. ;-)
anyway, my original point was that you can run everything on a mac that you can on a pc, so the Mac is not a closed hardware...
lets face it... bmw's, ferraris, audis cost more than skodas, fords, volkswagens. People pay for brand, image and also (percieved) quality. Apple take advantage of that. fair play to them.
