I'm just responding to your assumption that it would be crazy to pay more for a laptop just for the case. First, you added the OS comment, don't pretend you didn't edit your post, it originally just said I must be kidding to think someone would pay more just for the case. But even your addition assumes the person doing this doesn't already have a copy of whatever OS they want to use, or don't plan to "obtain one.
" If they do, that rules out paying more for the OS. And as far as other nice laptops, most of the really nice looking ones cost as much as the apples (sony is a great example, nothing special about them but some of them look nice so people buy them for far more than they are worth).
I didn't say I
would do this, in fact I specifically said I would not because they are just too expensive. But it is not unthinkable that someone might buy a mac and ditch the OS, not at all.
I am not too sure why I need to calm down. Here I thought I was just sitting here eating and browsing the internet, but apparently I am flying off the handle. Who knew??!
