That is why you won't see Apple devices significantly discounted. Those who can afford the superior ecosystem will pay for it.
That said, I'm rooting for Android and Microsoft for those who can't and to provide competitive benefits for everyone. I'm sorry that HP helped kill the Palm ecosystem. The webOS was excellent.
