At least on the PC side many are allowed to play the game, and win or loose as the market sees fit. On the MAC side when Apple saw that other companies were building a better MAC they took their toys and ran home to mother. What kind of fairness is this? I really do like some of the things that Apple machines are able to do. I just don't like the monopoly they have over their user base. As good as their machines are they just are not worth being 1.5 to 2 times more expensive than the PC's with comparable equipment. Not trying to roast a duck here, just trying to compare apples with whatever.
