Sure, most Mac faithful will get the post-keynote blues when an expo doesn’t introduce major hardware improvements. But wouldn’t it be nice if suddenly 17″ SuperDrive iMacs started selling for $1199? That’d increase Mac market share! Heck, much as I like my PowerBook sitting atop its Lapvantage Dome, I’d go get one! PowerPage Plausibility Meter is only reading about 5 out of 10.
