Too Much Masstige

As my British cousin told me, products like the iPod have "masstige", meaning a combination of mass availability, and prestige. But this kind of stuff can't last forever. My daughter who is in college needs a new laptop, and she was adamant that she didn't want a MacBook. Its price is right, but apparently "everyone" on campus has a MacBook...

Basically, the MacBook is just so cool that it's not. Soon I expect she'll be on the market for a Sanyo MP3 player...
