While I am somewhat annoyed about just buying a MacBook only to find out prices have been lowered and a new version is being released, you can’t help but appreciate the great new products that Apple (APPL) releases. Whether it be the iPod or their notebooks, for years now Apple has consistenly taken market share away from its competitors. Almost to the point of putting some of them out of business.
If you know anything about Apple, then you probably are familiar with their expensive price points, and, while you may not want to fork over a couple thousand for a new notebook, you may be more inclined to invest that money into some Apple shares.
Why Buy Apple?
Nearly 100 points off its 52-week high, a buy at this level is almost garunteed money. Although it may take some time for Apple to truly see the payoff of their new computers, it will happen.
Apple customers are not typically the normal everyday shopper. Apple is seen more as a luxury product with more devoted fans. I’m sure many have heard Apple users rave how they could never go back to a regular pc, and it will continue to hold true. That being said, it is almost more likely that those affected by the current credit crunch were probably not big Apple customers beforehand, and, if they were, then you can bet they will find a way to get a hold of these new products.
Overall, with the holiday season right around the corner and the constant craze of grabbing the latest and greatest technology, you can be 100% sure that Apple won’t stay below the current price level for very long.
Hey, eventually you will be able to buy the new Macs with profit you had made off of the company itself. Seems like a win-win situation to me.
