I’ve been a Mac user since I bought a Mac Classic in graduate school. Sadly, the last Mac I bought was in 2004 when I got a spiffy G4 iBook. I’d really like a new Mac, but Apple just sells the Mini (too weak), the iMac (too all-in-one) and the Pro (too expensive). Ideally, I’d like a nice mini-tower that has the power of the iMac, but with a lower price. Since I have a very nice monitor, I’d rather not buy an all-in-one computer.
On July 3 Apple filed suit against Pystar here in Florida. I suspect that the case will not go well for Psystar. However, I do hope that this incident motivates Apple to produce a mid-range tower Mac computer. Many people seem quite interested in that sort of machine and I think that it would sell reasonably well. Of course, Apple is probably worried that it would simply cannibalize sales of its other Macs.
