I emailed my coworker Pat about the new iMacs last week, he responded with:
They're going for that rich-11-year-old-girl-with-their-own-VISA-card market; they'll sell 37 of them.
And now this from an article in MacWeek:
Salomon Smith Barney analyst Richard Gardner doesn't get it either. "We are concerned that these bold new patterns will appeal to a limited audience at a time when Apple needs to broaden its appeal.
That "limited audience" of 8 to 17 year-olds, perhaps heavily female, just happens to be the future. And the future of the PC is what Apple seems to be wisely staying focused on.
Pat thinks he should be an analyst.
