Indeed they will - this whole "hipster" era that Apple is piggy-backing off of is pretty interesting and goes to show the cultural influence a corporate business has.

some people are willing to pay for something that thin, i'd be curious to see if any pc manufacturer will even come close to matching the form factor..i've seen cell phones list for $400, so i can't imagine a state of the art laptop seeling for less than 4 figures...

I have to admit, I'm one of those dweebs that has a fancy cellphone (HTC Touch)- but that's only because I know a guy that manages a shop, and he gave me a insane deal. To any extent, they're decent conversation pieces.

Re: Why buy a Mac?

don't get me wrong, i think the iphone is amazing but i've had bad experiences with at&t and it's more of a luxury item at this point, i'd rather save for a nice digital slr...

Why buy a Mac?

1. It's NOT a PC
2. They look cool
3. They just work - out of the box
4. You can afford the best
5. It's not a game machine
6. You have good sense
7. No viri, malware or other internet creepy crawlies
8. You can run any operating system
9. You're not afraid to think different
10. Just to pi$$ off the Windoz folks.

:-)
