    I'm very much linkin' this. Now, we need tv commercials for this thing . . .

    Under every tree, Star Wars DVD Box set which you can watch on your brand new iMac G5.

    *wishful thinking*

    Laptops selling well too

    The iMac is beating all those PCs... and the eMac and PowerMac are doing nicely too! Even more Macs are in the top 20-30 if you keep scrolling.

    And I just checked the laptops... 6 of the top 15 notebooks are from Apple, including 3 in the top 10. All of Apple's laptop models/sizes (maybe not every speed variation) are found in the top 25, even the 17" PowerBook.

    And in the general "Computers" category, accessories are all on top (lots of wireless gear), with the 15GB iPod at number one. 2 of the top 10 items are iPods. 5 of the top 20 are Apple products, including AirPort Express and two colors of iPod Mini--which would no doubt rank much higher if the colors were counted together.

    So I looked at "Electronics."--a very broad group with cameras, PDAs, computer peripherals, phones, and everything. Cheap little flash cards rank high of course. Even so, the iPod's #3 there. Only three music players make the top 30--and two of them are iPods, both outranking a Rio. Keep going down the ranks and you see lots more iPods--and only a few other players.

    Under "Servers"... "Sorry. There are no top sellers available in Servers." :D

    I check Amazon every once in a while to see how Apple's hardware is selling, it's always cool to see their products at the top of the best selling list :)

    Top-10 positions are all well and good, but I want to see some real hord-core unit figures that fully show the penetration the iMac G5 is having.

    Obviously I won't get that, but it's what I want anyway.

    Pointless rant aside, it is pleasing.

    Just wait until more statistics are generated - then you'll see the revealing numbers.

    Numbers!!???? I want more than NUMBERS ... I want the blood of the unforgiving weak minded X86 cronies who polute my eyes during every waking moment of my working hours..... :mad:

    Fortunately I spend most of my work day asleep at my desk, thus quelling any urges to kill the fools ........

    Second pointless rant aside, I'm gonna reckon that this may be the biggest selling PPC unit in the last 4 years, and the design of it, unlike it's 2nd gen predecessor that I love and want buried with me, gives scope for far more development of upgrade and improve.

    I sense a second wave of the post '98 good times ...

    How big a computer seller is Amazon in the US?

    Those numbers are really nice but how relevant are they, I mean does Amazon US sell a lot of computers and/or peripherals? (Over here, most people buy articles such as books, CD, DVDs, software, etc. from Amazon).
