Out of curiosity. I'd like to discuss about this fact. You see as Apple gaining more and more popularity, Apple desktop family (MacMini, iMac and MacPro) just getting more and more deserted. For a convincing proof, I also post some graphs here: As you see, Mac desktop family is the blue section and MacBooks are green section. Year after year the desktop sales barely increased. But in total portion (look at second graph) Mac desktop has been gaining less and less popularity each year. Another obvious proof is that you can visit forums.macrumors.com ... See how many views and posts on Mac desktop section vs MacBooks section. I own the new Macbook Air (cheapest one) and new iMac too (the hi-end one). And really, I wouldn't buy the Air if I didn't have too because sometimes I just have to bring my job outside. If not ... wow my iMac able to do anything I throw at it without hiccup. In short I enjoy my iMac much more than the Air. I really hope I don't need the Air. I mean, their desktop deserve more than that. With Macbook you have to be careful about Magsafe, battery life and cycle count. Macbook has more risks and prone to damage because exposed to different surface and environment. And also Macbook tend to get hotter due to cramped space and ventilation. You don't get those problems with the desktop obviously. The price? Yes, I admit a basic MacPro cost $2500 without display. It's surely too expensive for common user, but the iMac and MacMini is an excellent bargain and offer much better performance for the money. (I know .. a PC tower too can do much bette than equivalent notebook) So ... why do you think Macbook gaining more and more popularity than their desktop? I think despite being immobile, desktop give much more benefits than MacBooks ... Care to share your opinion?
