You speak of elegant as if Apple could attain such. Aluminum siding on your mac book is not elegant. Scuffed white peripherals are not elegant. A Starschmucks stain on some @ssholes shirt cause he can't afford to use the internet on his macbook at home is not elegant.
A box that you can hide and use for everything is elegant. A thin client that boots to a second partition on a box that also contains your DVD collection and those that you download and rips from those you rent is elegant.
Apple has a following of people who fantasize that their product is a conversation starter/piece of interest to anyone they see, when most don't give a shit other than to realize that you are either a schmuck, have too much money, or that is all that you could afford after attending liberal arts while delivering pizzas in your mom's car.
I don't want to see, hear, smell, taste, or touch my box other than to insert things in, and take them out. So thereby i can't kiss apples butt.
