    not sure who the major demographic is for apple...but whoever/ wherever that is....they are certainly getting screwed royally.

    I just bought a new phone this month...a mid-tier LG model....cost me $200.

    If I am correct this is not targeted at or meant for the general consumers but corporations that have the financial backings to purchased them for use.

    As opposed to consumers elsewhere in the world, who are, collectively, a genius lot.

    I think it's more about the illusion of status than anything else. For some reason, Apple people think they're the elite
    because they wasted money on an overpriced computer or cell phone.

    Whatever happened to "A penny saved is a penny earned". ???

    I'm sorry to say that this mindset has gone the way of the dinosaur.

    @Hadron-Curious: Nice to see you around. :)

    So far, I've only seen one small business that uses Apple. The Laundromat by me.

    Most corporations would rather use Windows Server as it's been in service for many years.

    Apple still dominates with regards to apps like Photoshop. That's more than likely because of the graphic displays.

    Thank you for the kind gesture, madam.

    I read Facebook uses Mac OS and tens of thousand of corporations around the world.

    When I complain about Apple products among my friends they usually call me out and say I have a gripe with Apple products because I cannot afford them(I used MacBook in the past) and that I am cheapskate. I always tell them it is not about the price per se but the specifications relative to the price.

    find out what the movie studios, production and media/advertising companies use and then you will see the hundreds of millions they pay regularly for flash disk and high end hardware and huge internet pipes to transfer/transport files and raw data across the world when needed :) last decade has seen huge spike in billionaires and kids getting lots of wealth and inheritance worldwide and all that fake money in communist countries so you have seen a spike in high end products to market as the rich spend like water and air unlike us frugal cheapskates that know better :)

    Regarding those corporate Apple Users, that are mainly companies which are using mainly Vector Graphics and companies in the various Print Businesses, which includes also companies dealing with News and Publications and Journalists etc. Even today, most printing machines are based and using Vector Graphics. Most used personal computers are based on using Pixel Graphics.

    Universities and collages are big on Apple too. Of the folks I know of that work at the Uni near me, it's all Apple until retirement and then it is M$ after that.
