|It's simple: they sell it for that much because people will buy it at that price. Econ 101.
There's no need to for car analogies or statistics, it's all economics.
I'm looking to spend about $3000 on a laptop and I'd get a Powerbook in a heartbeat if Windows wasn't required for the virtual design program I am enrolled in. I'm sorry, but I have yet to see any lPC laptop that has good style (except for maybe a Voodoo PC notebook, but that's really just an amazing paint-job on a clevo or compal, and guess what, you're paying over $3000 for a good setup).
It's all about demand.

Econ 101? What, you get that at college? They sell it for that much because people will buy it at that price? Yeah, right. Try running a business. You sell it to maximize your profit most effeciently.
I hate college business... After years of being apart of running a business, these college terms and teachers annoy the hell out of me. Try that stuff in the real world and your gonna find out it doesn't work real fast... I guess then you go back to college a little longer and become a... Business Teacher?
Also, if you want to be able to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that everyone else is doing, get a Windows. If you want stability, and application performance... Get an Apple. Pretty simple. I see Apple is being some what specialized to a small group of people. A very small group... At the same time the whole group doesn't use Apples. I know a lot of professional engineers, designers, manufacturers, machinist, that have moved to windows... Cheaper to run, and easier to find people to work on them.
As for style... Well, if you like the "Gumby" or "White padded cell" look.... Apple is your place. I like making my own customizations to my computers. Desktop, or laptop.
