okay, that seems like a funny survey if you ask me - only 676 people?

well in any event, it's good to know that macs are in demand :)

Actually, 676 isn't that bad of a sample (what? plus or minus 3 or 4 percent is a margin of error). Law of alrge numbers.....

well technically, as long as you have a sample size of 30 your stats can be concidered okay. but in my eyes, if you're going to annouce it as *all* theft, 676 is not a large enough sample size to concider the number as valid...
