I sort of envision a lot of the Apple fans in that state of mentality--they will take whatever Apple dishes out and be happy with it and remain loyal.
well I sort of agree but you omit one important thing. Apple products (in general) work so well and user satisfaction is higher than other brands. Look at the ipod, it has a 70% market share!
And not only that Apple have been at the forefront (arguably until recently?) of innovation (iphone, ipads etc)
but I agree, they are not cheap
