Where have you been? The PC/Apple guy commercials have been all over the
Net. You can buy anything they offer online. And if all you are saying is
that Apple doesn't do a lot of push e-mail offering steep discounts--guess
what? They don't have to, having successfully removed themselves from the
cutthroat commodity-PC market where DELL, for example, is now faltering.

Also, you should do a little research before you run on about Market share.
Please note:
