I couldn't agree more, but I think what lies at the crux of the matter goes beyond features and functionality, and lies deep within the psyche of most people. IMHO I believe it relates to "status","popularity", and the "lemming effect". Apple's marketing and subsequent fan-boy-ism has reached a fevered pitch. e.g. - Apparently they have sold 3 million iPads?

It's not the features, or functionality... my net-book has more capabilities, and at a much cheaper cost I might add.

The important thing to note, is fads come and go, but real solutions last the test of time, look at Linux.
