$699 for an entry level mini is getting at least closer to Earth in terms of pricing.
But $500 for 8GB of RAM?
And of course what's a computer without a display? Well for $899 you can have one, the only one, that we sell.
Keyboard? Use ESP pussy! Ok hell let's get a keyboard too so we can at least tell the damn thing what to do: $49.00.
MS Office for $149.95? Pass. Entry level printer? Ok: $99.95.
Protection plan? You betcha! I'm not going to risk this
Now then what's my total...
$500 8GB RAM
$149.00 MS Office 2008 Home Edition
$99.95 Entry Level Printer
$149.00 Apple Protection Plan
$1895.95 - entry level Mini
Oh shit I almost forgot, now I need to buy software
to actually do anything with the damn thing! Then again it could just be an iTunes server
EDIT: Before tax.
