Price recommendations for Apple

Apple's computers are great, they're fast, stable, and efficient. BUT, the pricing is a bit high for the average consumer (including me!). Here's what I would like to see apple pricing be for their various computers:

NAME: Apple's baseline price (most expensive model in brackets) / My recommended price

iMac 20": $1199 ($1499) / $999 ($1249)

iMac 24": $1799 ($2199) / $1399 ($1799)

Mac Pro: $2799 / $2699

Mac Mini: $599 ($799) / $399 ($599)

MacBook (white): $999 / $799

MacBook: $1299 ($1599) / $1099 ($1349)

MacBook Pro 15": $1999 ($2499) / $1699 ($2099)

MacBook Pro 17": $2799 / $2599

MacBook Air: $1799 ($2499) / $1399 ($2099)

On what foundation doth thee maketh such pronouncements? You're as bad as Abraham coming down offa the mountain with the "Thou Shalt"s!

I've looked into Apple's profit margin per product. It's higher than Dell, HP, etc. etc. That means - they overprice because they can get away with it. But they definitely make great products.
