I think this whole idea isn't bad, but the Wintel market already has that, that is why I was first attracted to the Macs because they were different (I was a PowerPC guy for ages), but then I bought a MacBook Pro, I realized that other than the processor and some hardware changes, Mac never really had anything "that" awesome, for the price, so I went back to PCs (I had always had Windows, but PCs were bothering me at the time).

I suppose my point is, it is all a little depressing to have Mac go practically mainstream (practically a fancy PC) and be such tightwads about it and not admit they are practically a PC producer now, sure their quality standards are high, but that was more warranted before they started using Intel hardware, which has a high standard already as far as im concerned.

I dont know what they should do now, I am not Steve Jobs, so I wont speculate, he wont listen to me anyway :-)

Don't all post at once (i hate that), it is, after all, an opinion, whats it really worth to you?
