Apple's lunchbox is a feast in comparison. Nothing being flushed away here.
Where else you can buy a 2nd hand, 7 year old machine, for under £250, that will run the very latest version of the OS, and all the latest applications, without having to spend a fortune on any upgrades: that will also operate concurrently as a PC running WindowsXP or 7 or even 8!
And you don't have to be a techy nerd to get it working either.

John Sculley (Mr Pepsi Cola) gave Microsoft written permission to copy the Mac GUI. If it wasn't for Mr Sculley there wouldn't be Windows.
Does Lenovo, or HP, or DELL, or any other PC hardware manufacturer make a box that will run the competitors OS and Windows on the same box?
SO you want cool longevity yet still need to run PC software. What's the problem?
