I don't see any chance Apple will capture much more of the market than it has; unless a person is an Apple user already, it would make no sense for them to purchase such a limited system.

The argument that all one wants to do, in the main, is surf the net, and send a letter to Aunt Martha, would require a person to pay much too much for the basic Apple box, then too much again for a limited selection of printers, and a non-competetive price for software.

Apple made its bones in the educational market; now, with impossible budgets leaving schools with too few books, and no supplies, how can too-costly computer purchases be justified?

Apple, poor Apple, I'm afraid you are suffering the Curse of Job(s)!
