    Doesn't this strike you as being strange, on both the US and UK Apple stores, no macintosh computer makes the top 10 sellers.

    Perhaps Apple should reinvent their hardware line :p.. oh wait, that's MacTel.

    I don't think you realize how much they sell of all the other stuff in that list.
    Go to Amazon and search>Top Sellers>Electronics>Desktop or Notebook computers.

    Also the best selling book is a book on Mac OS X.

    The Halo is working. :)

    seems completely reasonable to me. What are you going to sell more of, computers that cost thousands of dollars and are split among several product lines, or ipods and the accessories that go with them. And look at the financials from apple this quarter. In terms of volume, iPods trounce macs in terms of units sold. Again, that's no unexpected since they sell them to PC users as well and own 75-80% of that market.

    Well just for your knowledge, Macs usually make up at least two of the top sellers list.

    Perhaps it's because they've got some pretty good deals on other 3rd party products.

    I agree with you. You would at least expect one or two Macs to be on the top 10 list.
