Macs are expensive because they can be. Macs have a gross profit margin exceeding 35%, where PC makers (Dell, HP, Gateway, etc), have margins around 6%. People are simply willing to pay for the user friendliness and platform stability that comes with Macs, as opposed to their crash and virus prone PC cousins.
