    Why does Apple charge so much?

    2000 for a laptop that can't even play games well?

    Their pricing is insane.

    the MBP can't play games well? What games are you playing?

    Apple products are expensive because by overpricing they scare away everyone who isn't serious about buying a Mac, effectively creating the perception of the Mac as a luxury good, and ensuring that they have a user base that will obey Apple's every command.

    Ok, even if it could, the Apple products are still extremely overpriced.

    The cheapest computer they offer is the base level, keyboard-less, mouse-less, monitor-less, Mac Mini...and it's 599

    Yes? and by overpricing they ensure that you'll either get a Mac and love it cause you can't swallow the fact that you wasted all that money if you don't like it, or get something else and always lust after the Mac. Apple's customer satisfaction is the highest in the business.

    Are you asking why they charge so much, or why people pay so much?

    personnaly i dunno why they are so expensive. i really dont like the MACOS but saying that over the recent years its a shame apple have gone to intel rather than stay with ppc.
    i have a iMac 20" (christmas pud shape. not the new one) and guess what o/s is on it........ you guesd it Ubuntu Server!!!!!!!

    it runs perfectly on PPC arch its only a baby 1.25GHZ.

    And I think there are many companies out there that are just as good or better then apple in the PC market like HP and Dell
