Cars and Trucks and Mac SUVs

Excellent point by Jason Snell:

So maybe it’s a mistake to think that Macs are trucks. Maybe today’s Macs are more like SUVs: they’re more expensive and better appointed cars. It’s a category that’s just as popular as the car, and way more popular than the pickup truck.

Any analogy taken too far always breaks down. But I think this observation works very well.
