Seriously, how many average home users actually use their printer? If you're not printing, and the only games you play are java / facebook then what do you need a desktop PC for? Bringing home a win8 desktop with its non-intuitive interface will drive that point home.
They can get a Mac Mini for $599... my bet is Apple will sell a fair number of these at that price for the average joe user.
