Well, Apple just lost a potential sale. My dad hit 5 numbers on the state lottery and won just over $2K. He decided to do something fun with the money and get a new laptop. I kept pushing the Macbook on him, but he wouldn't budge from the Windows based laptops because of the screen size. He's about to turn 63 and most people that age don't want some tiny screen with super high resolution. Of course, he could have bought a MBP, but the $1999 starting price was more than he wanted to spend, considering he has to pay income tax on his winnings anyway. So, he ended up going with a ThinkPad R61 with a 15.4" screen, 2.2 GHZ Core 2, 160GB HDD, DVD burner, built-in webcam, Office 2007 Small Business Edition, etc. and it was still about $500 cheaper than the MacBook Pro. Of course, I'm happy he is getting a new laptop to replace his aging Gateway laptop that sounds like a lawn mower because of the loud fan, but I'm really disappointed that he didn't get a Mac because he's going to miss out on the experience of owning a Mac. Apple is missing the boat on people who would like to switch to macs, but won't because of the higher prices and holes in their lineup of computers, especially in comparison to Windows based offerings. Apple - let's see a 15.4" Macbook in addition to the 13" to give people more options, without having to pay way more for a MBP.
