Someone who wants hardware selection and an upgrade path at low cost.

That's probably why they aren't selling many machines, tho- Most people who purchase Apples aren't looking for build-to-order machines, and those Mac users who are are usually engineering types who would just as soon build their own (to put it simply).

Hit the nail on the head there.
Where's the mid range options? A nice small, easy to work on tower you can upgrade the CPU, RAM, HD or video card easily. No integrated monitor either.
Wait, that's called a hackintosh
Thats called a dumbIntosh
Really is the industrial design that Apple has or ya can simply buy a butt ugly Dell or butt ugly buy ya own box and build it your self - Sure some people want to build their own butt ugly cars as well and those are questionable that theirs are faster ? ?
