Well, I came back from a very short trip to Taiwan last week, and discovered that Macs have gained little, if any traction there. There were mostly Acer and ASUS notebooks everywhere I went, with a cousin of mine even telling me that his reason for staying away from one was because of the 'inferior PowerPC processor'. I was surprised to hear this, seeing how most Taiwanese manufacturers end up winning the contracts to make our Macs (Foxconn, etc). There were no absolutely no retail stores in Taipei (or marketing, save for the few iPhone ads here and there), and the MBPs I came across were often marked up anywhere from $100-$1000. How are things on the other side of the pond in other countries? If you're international, please chime in.
