This story is completely wrong. I know several people that already have theirs. They have been shipping since mid December, just at a very low rate.

Overpriced, underpowered, whatever.

If you can look at a computer, a thing designed to do work or play or whatever, and without even turning it on, you can say to yourself -- "wow, that's a beautiful thing"... Well, I suppose you can charge whatever people will pay for that.

I haven't consumed the Kool-Aid, but I do have and use Apple products. My computers are PC. But when I see it, and touch it, I can't help but exclaim how gorgeous these things are. And it makes me want one KNOWING that it's not the best value for my money.

It's still the BMW vs. Civic argument. Some people see value in how their computer looks, feels and makes THEM feel about it.

spot on. however I wish apple would put better hardware in their DESKTOP models so I can actually install linux or windows and do my regular stuff with it. and don't tell me I can always get a mac-pro, I have an aluminum tower from silverstone tyvm

I don't think that is the best analogy, as the two cars need to have the same engine, breaks, drive train, performance and such; Then double the price of one and you have a great Mac vs PC analogy.

Isn't that what a shortage is? A supply that can't meed demand right?

Oh wait this isn't a real shortage this is apple doing the whole "this is awesome but you can't have one" thing again. Oh apple, your tactics are so simple yet so effective.

I'm excited about this computer. Finally Apple has a good graphics card (GTX 680MX). Even if it is expensive, the option is there for those who want it. I've yet to see a better all-in-one (price aside).
