You Can't Lead and Follow at the Same Time
Authored by: youcanrunnaked on Feb 19, '03 12:06:14PM

Apple excelles at innovation and delivering leading-edge technologies in an eay-to-use form. But its procesor speeds lag. It's a contradiction. Fix that, (and add a dash of less obtuse marketing), and the problem is solved. With a higher-powered processor (I'm thinking the new IBM chip in development), they could even bundle the machines with Virtual PC and most people could run their existing Windows appa and not notice the difference. (Okay, maybe 3D games would be a problem.) Stripped models will not please anyone. The eMac is about as low as Apple should go. Lower prices would be welcome (by me, anyway!), but are not the answer for Apple. Look at Gateway. Fighting like a mad dog for market share, and going broke in the process. Better to have a small but stable share of the market, and make money on every sale.
