You don't want them to do that. The price of your PC would likely double, if not go up by at least 60% (based on price of PC vs Apple on a pure hardware basis) Especially entry level PCs from OEMs.

Apple is also a pile of shit. Overcharging for PCs running an OS that they modified. So it isn't their hardware and it isn't their OS, but you pay 60-100% more?

I guess it makes sense... I mean chemo is expensive.
