Many broke people but Macs because they dont know what theyre doing. Many people buy a Windows PC and spend a lot. Maybe this analysis proves that PC users are generally not bought into marketing so easily. I can confidently say that there are more wealthier Windows/Linux users than Mac users.
What most people in this thread aren't realizing is, and it's stated directly in the OP's post:
Orbitz's data accumulated over the years have statistically shown that users who are using Macs typically spend more on the same destinations than users using Windows. It is only logical for them to implement a system that shows results that are more likely to be relevant to the Mac user's interests first (more expensive rooms). A Windows user would receive cheaper options first. The same options are still available to both, just presented in a different order.
There is no conspiracy or anything here. Just facts with hard data to back it up.
