The Mac won’t affect PC’s

The iPod won’t affect Creative Labs

The iPhone won’t affect Blackberry.

The iPad won’t affect Netbooks.

Seeing a pattern?

When $499 turns to $399 in October. Then will see how the iPAD won’t affect netbook sales.

Let’s face it, the iPAD is going run circles around a little keyboard, a little screen and an clunky Linux machine.

Even if Apple eats only 5 to 7% of the netbooks lunch this year; remember netbook manufacturers are operating on razor thin margins. They need volume.

another blind article from another mac fanboy in the RDF. I doubt anybody doesn’t want to pay 3-5 times more for a mac because they LOATH there computing experience. Its because mac overcharges for everything they sell. My Sony Vaio Laptop has a better processor (i3 compared to core 2 duo), 4 GB of RAM (same on mac) more HDD space, 320 GB (250 in mac) than the macbook pro 15″ and cost $600 dollars compared to $1700. It has an HDMI out and its made of polycarbonate which in some respects is better than aluminum. Windows 7 is amazing and IMO I “LOATH” OSX compared to it. As for slow growth, its apple who still hasn’t put the core i series in there computers (except for the imac 27″) Netbooks may have started out slow and under powered but now pc’s like the HP mini 311 has enough power to watch HD movies and play graphics heavy games. Speaking of underpowered the ipad has a small processor, only runs apple approved apps and cant even multi task . Im going for the HP slate. It runs a real OS, can multi task and can play videos and flash games in the browser with no lag or freezing.

another fanboi(presumably not a shareholder) who is actually happy that apple is making 40-45 percent on each product they sell lol, a fool and his money are soon parted. Apple always compared to products to BMW/Mercedez Benz, this guy wants to compare Ipad to a well made Pizza, lol, the depths to which fanbois go

in any case, netbooks have a multi-tasking OS , so atleast in that respect they are better than the magical and revolutionary ‘giant Ipod touch’. Why do you fanbois want to demean/denigrate people who dont buy Apple products? does it give you a kick in your sad little life? do you find meaning in your life by purchasing a apple product ? do you self-actualize the moment you buy a Apple product. GET A LIFE please.
