    20 American's, wow, I didn't realise Apple had that many customers ;).

    Seriously though I'm not surprised, 70% of them probably just have iPod's though...

    I don't think 20 Mac users bought those.

    That was definetly a machine ahead of its time.
    I think it should do a comeback with a reasonable price. It'll kick a$$. I don't think the Mac Mini is an alternative, cause you can't upgrade anything. What was so cool about the Cube was that you could replace whatever you wanted. Oh, and that it had a 3.5" hard drive and standard PCI (or whatever) graphics card.

    I have never heard of any company named strategic solutions as being a player in the research market. I would really like to see the detailed version of this study and understand how they got any of these numbers, which I have a very difficult time time believe is truly reflective.I cannot even begin to see how they would make any determination based on age without significant support from apple with data and then I can only imagine with the sample size actually was.

    It was an example of a great concept, but poor execution. Nobody in their right minds was going to buy a machine with just a half length AGP slot, notebook optical drive, single hard drive, and just two DIMM slots when you could get the PowerMac for less.
