Listening to the recent Conference Call rebroadcast, I picked up a vibe that we may be seeing price cuts on Apple's Hardware (desktop/laptop) products this year. In one question in particular, somebody asked about the Power Macs higher price (something like 35% higher) and slower performance than a comparable Dell system. It seemed that Apple hinted at lower prices on products due to "monitoring" the market situations and adjusting accordingly. (referring to the Intro $1799 Power Books, where before it cost well over $2000 for a PowerBook). Since Apple can't compete speed-wise until the IBM 970 later this year, do you think Apple will cut prices to sell more "Pro" Desktop machines until the new chip? My reason in thinking this: They seem to be passing off Quark as the reason for very sluggish Power Mac sales. When Quark comes out in a few months and Power Mac sales are still getting lower, what will they blame it on? I don't think they'd go directly out and blame it on speed because it may hurt their marketing. I think they'll increase sales by lowering prices to step up sales (and keep investors quiet) until Uncle Steve delivers the 970. Thoughts?
