Just to throw some gas on the fire:

Why doesn't Apple just have a fire sale on the low-end Macs?
I mean really low, wipe out the inventory of Plus'es and Se's
before the new low-end computers come out. Then the people
who want a cheap Mac can get one and Apple can wipe out its
inventory while gaining a few more customers.
Colour is really nice, but how many people (in the "low-end"
I use it to type papers etc. market) need it? How many people
REALLY need the blazing fast speed of an SE/30?
The main problem with this approach is that stock Se's and Plus'es
don't have the memory to do anything with Multifinder
and I doubt Apple would be that willing to trade customers
for profits...:-)
