    Wal-Mart outsells Saks Fifth Avenue as well. You get what you pay for people.

    I like my chromebook. It's quick and does what I need it to do; email, internet, RealJock, porn...what else is there?

    after over priced hardware; intermittent video cards, glitchy power connectors, flaky screen coatings. The failed desk top osx Yosemite operating system...

    Well the gay guy killed the Apple dream.

    Apple could do with less secrecy and denial.

    The last big development project was the iWatch. Apple sold one to Art but other wise not a big sales ticket.

    truth.

    Buy a chomebook today, you'll need to replace it in a year or two.

    My Mac has been going strong for 4 years... and the one before that lasted 10.

    A chromebook is $129, a MacBook is $1000+ why are we even comparing these two laptops in the first place. One is near free, underpowered and it is designed to run software via a web browser the other one you have to pay thousands of dollars for, its built for a full fledged operating system, and provides the power necessary to run productivity software. It probably makes more sense to compare chromebook sales to tablet sales, Although a tablet can do more than a chromebook still.

    Had my MacBook for 5 years, still not a single issue. Also OSX Yosemite is old news, you need to catch up. The Apple Watch is the most successful smartwatch sold to date, however nobody really cares about smartwatches and that goes for all brands no just Apple.
