Am not surprised. There was a story about the cost of an iphone awhile back, sommin like $15 worth of parts, sold for $1000...

Of course the parts don't cover the whole story, there is advertising, marketing, labor costs, housing, etc etc. But still... stupid profits...

It's why Apple are so huge, they picked a price for their products that really excels itself.
