A quote from John Martellaro on MacObserver:
Many people have a technological tipping point. That’s the point where software, iLife ’09 for example, becomes so compelling that it can persuade one to give up personal, specialized, or UNIX geeky ways of doing things and just throw one’s entire weight behind a product. iLife ’09 did that for me with iPhoto and iWeb.
An interesting point. People like to get bogged down with spec comparisons and tend to forget that people buy computers because of what they can do with them – and with Apple’s iLife suite of software, you can do a whole lot. The value of a computer isn’t necessarily what you paid for it, but rather what you can do with it.
