And that is why apple wont drop their prices. They're a very profitable company that doesn't have to sell huge numbers like dell to achieve said results.

Maybe Kowenicki but they can't rely on being at a premium forever. The USP they have could soon bite them in their arse if they don't get the market share.
Then if they decide to make their OS available or lower the prices people could see it as desperation or they have an inferior product.

Do it soon while they are at a high to make the most impact. It's not as if their OS is a bad one.



Ultimately its not important how much it sells as sales of Windows OS's to the home Users as its only a minor player in windows sales.

Evidence?
From Microsofts latest financial report

Client revenue growth is directly impacted by growth of PC purchases from OEMs that pre-install versions of Windows operating systems because the OEM channel accounts for over 80% of total Client revenue.



All bow to me the VGChartz current reigning 3DS prediction champion 

 Bet with tbone51: Pokeon X & pokemon Y will not sell more than 8 million in 2013

 jarrod said:The Xbox360 or ps3 will not sell more than 75million units

July 2009 daveJ saidTrue the wii has a large lead now but by 2017 the most likely result will be 1. ps3 2. xbox360 3. wii <-- wii's successor launched in 2011 effectively killing sales of the wii

 2009 daveJ said: The wii will not break the 50% marketshare barrier it will go below the 40% marketshare barrier though in the future. VGChartz members: Impossible, youre an idiot that knows nothing about sales

It will do fine.
Microsoft will just force it to PC makers.
Vista sold about 50 millions 7 will do more :)
Microsoft is a monopole they will always "sell" lots of windows :)



@davej

good point.... and the manufacturers are lapping it up.... like the dell upgrade option.

thats how I am on windows 7.... free upgrade on a rfecent laptop purchase.

Lmao sounds like the fucking retarded Mac commercials couldn't stop the juggernaut that is Windows 7 from doing amazing. According to that wikipedia article it got to 4% market share in 2 weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if that's more market share then Mac has.

On another note does anyone have stats on computer marketshare? I know PC dominates Mac but by how much.
