Amazon's top sellers list is dominated by Apple, who claims the top 3 spots, and 10 of the top 25. The #1 computer sold by Amazon? The 13" MacBook 2Ghz Core 2 Duo.

If holiday buying shows what people really want, rather than what they must put up with, what will happen to Apple's ranking once we go back to normal purchasing patterns?
