“Apple (AAPL) is trading at $164 per share, $28 off their yearly high, and I want every share I can get going into the holiday season,” John Micheline writes for Seeking Alpha. “About three months ago I made a life changing decision, the decision to purchase an iMac desktop computer. 15 minutes later I was asking myself, ‘what took me so long?'”
“My initial impression was that the Mac offered the greatest operating system and computing unit I have ever experienced. Three months later, my Mac was my new prized possession, ‘My Baby,'” Micheline writes. “I, like so many others, found it hard to leave the familiarity I developed with Microsoft [Windows] OS. I heard Mac was great but I was a Microsoft guy. The truth is, I just didn’t know any better… I can truly say I am saying goodbye to Microsoft forever. I was stuck in a prison of Microsoft Operating Systems and have been released. Mac delivers freedom, a breath of fresh air in a dark place.”
“A good portion of the computing public remains trapped in Microsoft’s operating prison. Whether unwilling to admit it or not, consumers are slow to realize Mac computers and operating systems are leaps and bounds ahead of Microsoft products. I am not negative on Microsoft as a company, but as far as computers go, Mac is hands down a better product. When I go to work, I find myself depressed while working on their Microsoft or HP (HPQ) computers, thinking ‘why must the misery continue?’ It is like a horrible nightmare,” Micheline writes. “Don’t believe me, go right now to the store, purchase a Mac and let me know in a half-hour what you think. I guarantee satisfaction.”
Micheline writes, “So today, I am buying a mother load of Apple stock trading at $164 per share, almost 30 points off their yearly high. Honestly, I wouldn’t care if AAPL was trading at the yearly high; I want in for the holiday season. I believe this holiday season is an ‘Apple Holiday,’ a defining moment for the company.”
Micheline writes, “How was life without an iPod? I just can’t remember, nor do I want to… I presently own a Blackberry (RIMM) and compared to my friend’s iPhone, my Blackberry looks prehistoric. I am getting the iPhone for Christmas and the wait is brutal… Make no mistake about it, Apple is on the move. They have a quality company with amazing management and a loyal fan base. Once you buy one Apple product you are sure to buy another; there are just no comparable products on the market. This holiday seems to be Apple’s holiday; maybe for Christmas you should treat your self to a stock position in Apple and profit with the company.”
