that's great news, but taken with a grain of salt, I would say that Apple is at a high and Dell at a low. Do you think Apple or Dell has more room to go up?
Do you think Appel or Dell has more room to go down?

This is an interesting point with some validity but...I still think Apple has more room to go up, due to its innovation. It's in a low point at the moment, in terms of Macs, anyway, as its in the middle of a major transition and buyers are hesitant. After the Intel transition is complete, and with "the most amazing product pipeline Steve has ever seen", I believe that Apple has more room, not Dell.

While it's true that "Mr Market" is currently valuing Apple higher than Dell, Dell generates a lot more revenue.

But this does tell me one thing... Apple can afford to lower their prices a little.
How are Apple's price points and the stock market's valuation of Apple related like that?? I don't get what you're seeing here.

WTF! Who voted negative & why? You must explain yourself, and very well at that!

Ya, I was a little off. I should read the entire post before I open my big mouth next time. :eek:

But I think the two are related in a smaller, less significant way. More money should still mean they can afford to charge less, right? :confused:

I got it. I now have figured out that the Demi-Gods and Mediators have put up this thread simply to proove the fact that no matter what news that should all be positive, their a amongst us those that have signed up & watch this site to simply vote negative on everything! I SEE YOU MICHEAL DELL!!!

No. When Apple's stock price goes up, it does not mean that Apple the company gets more money. It means that Apple shareholders could sell for a profit. Keeping computer prices (and therefore profits) high is how Apple the company makes money.

Right... Suppose for one min it was the iPod which is up 61% year over year last quarter.

Last time I checked, this was only the second time in history that the market has "fluctuated" to put Apple ahead of Dell upon closing.
