I bought an iBook about a month ago, and the only thing I was considered besides it was the high end iMac, but I really don't need to burn DVDs and really wanted something portable... I wonder if Apple's portable sales are canibalizing the iMac sales... or if people are really just hanging onto their money through this crappy economy... <br><br>bottom line is that all PC sales right now are sluggish as hell, and it doesn't help that Apple had big manufacturing issues with the iMac (when everyone really really wanted it) to start with.<br><br><br>"In the old days, you'd finish a day's work and announce, 'I'm done.'

I imagine the eMac is also having a cannibalizing effect on the iMac's market. Jobs' success secret has been one part genius, one part rat cunning, and one part luck. I wonder if the last part has finally run out?<br><br><br><br><br>
