    I've found a movie of a MacWorld where this was announced, and almost everyone who was interviewed was very positive about this.

    Really proves how difficult it is to forsee these things....
    I mean, with hindsight we all know it was the worst decision ever.

    Well, maybe not the worst. I mean, it brought attention to the fact that apple was overpricing hardware. It helped bring down the CEO and usher the return of Jobs, and allowed him to stomp it all back out as soon as he returned...

    And in the mean time, the consumers won (though apple almost lost it all) with nice machines to boot.

    That, and who can argue with the sheer awesomeness of Power Computing's ad campaign...
