I wanted to get your thoughts on this. I understand Apple's demand for superior hardware, but do you think it might benifit Apple to offer a cheap stripped down laptop? Personally, i would love a cheap laptop to take on vacation (for hotel Wi-Fi internet access), on the go document typing, and the ability to watch DVDs. Dell's Inspiron B120 is $599 ($499 with rebate), has an Intel® Celeron® M 360 (1.40 GHz/1MB Cache/400MHz FSB), 512MB RAM, 40GB HD, 24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive, and built in wireless. Why can't offer at least offer something similar? There IS a market for this and it would be a nice way to gain some market share.
