I agree with The Macalope that Enderle is willfully obtuse, but I also think he (Enderle) is just plain dumb. That’s Enderle’s secret sauce: he says some things he knows aren’t true just to get attention, but he’s wrong about everything else, too.
Enderle’s premise is that Apple’s new MacBook lineup is too expensive and they’re not going to sell well and it’s going to put the company in financial trouble because would-be MacBook buyers are going to buy cheap laptops from Dell instead.
It’s only going to take a few weeks for us to get Apple’s results from this quarter, at which point we’ll find out that the new MacBooks are selling like hotcakes.
