competition: I would assume dell, hp, (or better yet, THE PC) All you have to do is google MAC VS. PC or PC VS. MAC Then there’s microsoft’s zune http://www.zune.net Apple is basically at Microsoft’s neck, but the fact that the Apple’s OS X is only for Apple computers puts Apple at a big loss. And these might be the iphone’s competition: http://www.google.com/search?q=phone’s+like+the+iphone&sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGGL,GGGL:2006-26,GGGL:en
The iPod and the iPhone were a big hit for both of them and I don’t know if apple would have made it thus far without the iPod specifically. If you want the truth, though, I believe Apple rips their customers off, especially when it comes to computers. You can only customize them so far, unlike the PC. It also costs you FOUR TIMES THE PRICE, if not more for parts like: RAM, Graphics cards (which are majorly outdated, mind you,) Raid 0, and the like. And don’t get me started on their overpriced, aluminum crapshoot monitors. Not just that, but you have to buy individual KITS just to install items on a Mac and these wind up running about four times the price as a part that’s indentical that you could use on a PC (that’s if you HAVE THE ROOM IN YOUR MAC, which are not really made for improvement anyway.). If you want proof, compare items on here http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/91074003/wo/wZ7EsILYEkfU2tvcX1N1ayYWmXJ/1.?p=0
with items from here(just because the Apple’s parts cost more, does not make them at all better): http://www.newegg.com/
