LOL, ofcourse they don't 'cost extra'. They could be manifactured cheaper. But I don't think the PC price would benefit from the added shipping costs. The reason why Apple can outsource, all their products are the same. With a DELL you can select so many different configurations, that the added shipping costs outweigh the benefits of outsourcing.
So you're saying Apple intends to raise their prices for iWhatever by $400 ?
Do you think that's the type of thinking that made Apple into the largest corporation ever?
Lump your +$400 statement into "the sky is falling" mantra that's in your bag of conservative talking points.
