I hate retards
WTF, better not to sell out than to sell out. Which company anywhere would rather make less profit than more? I can see the reason for a few weeks of holding back to get publicity (Sony were accused of that with the PS2 in the UK) but since Steve "God or Anti-Christ" Jobs has stated that they can't keep up with demand, im gona belive him. Just because when you lie to shareholders you can go to gaol.
Also i sugest you read "the wealth of nations" and then ask if the mac saves me 15 minutes a week, how much is 13 hours per year of my time worth? If your flipping burgers, probably not a lot. However Apple dosnt price for burger flippers, your "normal crap" about Apple being over priced would apply to Dell, HP and every PC maker, I'v built my own PC's and have got a £2000 PC for about £1100 and that giving benefit to the PC makers as i have reserched things like "chip glue" but i'v done that because im a bit of a geek (owned a BBC model B*) and so i do it for fun.
That's why Apple and Linux will alway find it very very very hard to get on the desktop. As long as Microsoft sell the OS at a lower cost than the training to move to different or free software, most businesses wont move.
