Default Macbook Air..$3000.....are you kidding me???

I looked it up on the apple store just now, they have a $1799 version of the macbook which I knew about, with a 13 inch screen, a 1.6ghz processor and an 80gb 4200rpm hard drive and all that......That price is ridiculous as it is.

But what I didn't know is that they have an "upgraded" version, still with a 13 inch screen, a 1.8ghz processor, a 64gb solid state drive, and you still have to buy an optical drive for it at $99.........The price for all this.....

$3197!!!! with the optional optical drive! And you have to buy an ethernet adapter ($29) and a modem adapter ($49!) if you want to connect to those.

And the pc itself only has 1 usb port, so you can only use one of those optional extras at a time........

Are you kidding me.....how have they even sold any of these things???

I would love for someone to explain to me how this thing is worth over 3 grand.

I like Apple's products, however I don't like their prices. This is the reason I bought a used iBook instead of getting a new Macbook at double the price. Their stuff isn't as bad as many people seem to make it out to be, it's just a lot of people refuse the buy the stuff because of the price and then bad talk their products based specifically on their price...
