    Which Apple product do you guys think will be most popular this holiday season? I think it will be the new Nanos, but I'm also thinking the new MacBooks will be very popular as well. I'd be interested to hear all of your thoughts. :)

    I wonder: Will a $1000+ computer sell more or the $150+ music player sell more. :rolleyes:

    I actually think the iPod Touch will outsell the Nano. Lots of people, especially kids, want an iPhone. Instead of shelling out $199 + a minimum $75/monthly payment to AT&T, parents will opt for the $230 8GB Touch.

    In terms of laptops, the MacBook will outsell the MacBook Pro. Plus, you can't compare MP3 players and laptops. It's comparing apples to oranges. Yes, pun intended! :D

    Yeah, I guess it is hard to compare two totally different products...Sorry

    Still, it will be interesting to see which products are big sellers and which ones aren't. I'm guessing the MacBook Pro will be the least popular because the line is only partially updated.

    I'm with the 8GB iPod touch.
    Then the iPod nano.
    Then the MacBook.

    I think people are purposely staying away from the iPhone and iMac due to suspected updates.
    And the MB is more likely to be a gift for the holiday season than the MBP.

    I'd say the nano, as they'd make an affordable yet really cool gift. They're advertised a lot as well.

    The iPod touch is advertised just as much.
    And I suspect it will beat the nano this year due to... Well mainly it's price drop and a little because of the new features.

    I have to go with the Nano since my mom just bought one and she almost never buys tech stuff for herself. Spent a half hour on the phone with her last night getting the Nano setup with her laptop and showing her how to get her CDs on there. Then spent almost 2 hours getting her laptop cleaned up and working properly so she wouldn't accidentally mess up it easily. Removed dozens of programs that Toshiba put on there and that well, she just needs to stop clicking 'Yes.'

    The nano is the first thing I've heard from her in awhile that she thought would work pretty well for her.

    Though the price on the Touch has got to be pretty appealing to many...

    Maybe it would be more fair to consider which product will make the most money??

    Ie. 1 x $3000 Mac Pro = 3 x $1000 Macbooks = 20 x $150 iPod Nano's (prices made up for simpler math :D)

    Even if the computers were cheaper, the iPod's will likely outdo every other product by a longshot...

    I'm guessing the iPod Nano. My dad, mom and mother-in-law all bought one on Black Friday. I also know other people that are planning on buying one.
