"If you have the money to spend, this is the best laptop you can buy right now." $2200 is an insane amount to pay for a notebook this day and age. To put it into perspective, I can buy everything in my signature and still have $750 left over versus buying the base model MacBook Pro with Retina!
Eh, it's a fair cop. Apple's laptops have been expensive for their component price for a long time, largely because of all the extra work making them thin. Contrast with the Mini, which is a really nice deal for what you get.
