Why is it so much more expensive?? An upgrade to a 80GB hard drive from the higher-end 60GB white model is only $50!

    The Theory goes.. if it was the same price. Possibly only a few want the white one. So they end up with a big warehouse of white ones that they gotta reduce the price of to shift (so they lose some $$). It's a bit nasty viewed from the buyer's end if you want Black but don't want to pay the Apple. It's a way to test the new Apple-in-black market - once the Black books are not flying off the shelves faster than the white books, supposedly the there is some kind of price reduction (by then Apple knows what the b/w ratio should be). OR maybe they make the Black book faster or something. It's a rip off or it's just economics depending on your view point.



    Bastards I say!
