How Apple sets its prices ?

MacWorld-Comparison-shopping for new electronics can be fun and addictive. With a bit of patience, some luck, and an eye for good deals, you can find everything from TV sets to hard drives at a significant discount. In fact, in our economy, discounts are one of the primary mechanisms that retailers use to compete against each other. (Apple, Industry)

No one really cares why Apple products never go on sale or why they're so homogenous in price.

I think people are more concerned with why a 13" Macbook Pro with 4GB of memory, a 500GB HDD, an i5, and integrated graphics costs $1200 when you can get a similarly spec'd windows laptop for about $400 right now. I mean, I understand you are buying into the brand name and ecosystem, so a few hundred dollars here or there would make sense, but $800 is an INSANE incongruity.

It is literally the only reason I have not gone full Apple right now. Even thinking of buying something that ridiculously priced makes my bunghole ache.
