My roommate just bought one of the 15" ones. Let me tell you, it's expensive, but not at all overpriced...

Apple puts a lot of fit and finish work into their notebooks that no one else does. Things like ambient light backlight changing, putting the charge led on the cable instead of on the side of the machine, magnetic detaching power hookups, solid construction, a quality lcd that's not pinched, lack of hooks sticking out on the top of the monitor.

If those sort of things are of no value to you, fine, but to some people those are worth money.
