Apple's Choice
Authored by: stewarsh on Apr 19, '08 09:59:12AM
What seems to be getting lost in this debate is that it is Apple's choice to not make a mid-range machine. There are already too many players in that market that are having problems(Dell, HP, Lenovo/IBM). Why in the hell would Apple want to join them?

Also for all those people who want to swap the video card, etc, the primary reason Apple doesn't do this is on the non-pro end is simple. If something doesn't work the average consumer would blame Apple. Apple commands a premium price because of the whole package you get from owning a Mac. By controlling all the hardware and the OS the can ensure that things are going to work and work well. By having to support every piece of crap component that you can get at BestBuy they'd end up with Windows. If that's what you want go buy a Dell or build your own machine.

Apple is doing very well, even in this more troubled economy. Why screw that up to cater to a market that really just wants Windows anyway? As for this clone business, it looks like a total sham anyway. The address has changed 4+ times on their website and the addresses listed either don't exist or have never hear of the company. This is a hoax or a scam.
