I’m not an Apple fanboy by any stretch of the imagination, but I do have to hand it to them with the new laptops. Not points on quality, but on revenue maximizing genius. Specifically, charging $150 more for a black laptop. People will pay for the cachet, and charging $150 is just enough to make sure it maintains cachet. That said, please shoot me if I ever think it’s a good idea for me personally to spend $150 more on a laptop just to get the color I want.

Hmm, once the whole “having a baby” thing calms down, I’ll have to bring

Now that you have a baby, the whole photo/websight/movie and other multimedia
capabilities might just sway you. I’ve already converted three others.
