    Capitalism at its finest, this is sickening how much concentrated wealth can exist in one spot.

    I know exactly what you mean. When they announced this yesterday it got me bumped out of a short on the Dow. Rich bastards.

    When there are so many living in abject poverty and dying of starvation world wide through no fault of their own... it makes me sick.

    IMO the wealth inequality angle fails to see the forest for the trees. The "sickening" aspect of poverty and starvation is not that some people and entities have significantly more wealth at their disposal than others. It's the corruption (in third-world countries) and toxic cultures (in first-world countries) that keeps people locked in these conditions that's disturbing.

    Yeah, right... and what do they spend it on? A huge spaceship office. It'd be better if they didn't have that money so we didn't create a few hundred jobs to build that thing. And all that money that will go to the steel workers who are making the materials for that building... we could save all that. And all the glass and all the furniture and the rest of stuff that makes up a building. It would be better if Apple didn't have any extra money.

    And what about Google! Those weirdos are spending their extra millions on solar panels for homes! It'd be much better to just burn something for energy, don't you think? Darn that evil capitalism.

    Ok, seriously... stop complaining and go invest in the stock market like every other person with a plan for financial stability. Then when a company does well you can log onto your account and see that you're now like $100 richer. Or you can complain. up to you.

    The only problem with your comment is that it fails to hold water against the pop culture concept of magic money. That is to say, you're stating that the money they spend actually goes somewhere other than their own accounts...That someone other than Apple's executive team is getting paid. You can't possibly expect any reasonable person to believe that? Crazy man!

    False. But go ahead and don't let reality mess with your desire to bash Apple.

    The new Mac Pros are made in the US.
