No, it really isn't worth considering because the EXACT same manufacturing costs apply to CPUs and they haven't budged one bit. Unless you can explain why that is, I can't take your post seriously.Although there's no easy way to do this (or at the very least, have an accurate figure for it), accounting for the die fabrication costs is worth considering here.
OTOH, if you CAN explain why that is, I would really appreciate it because I don't really want to believe that we're just getting screwed. However, not wanting to believe something has no effect whatsoever on what I believe. Objective fact always overrides what I want to believe and right now, your post doesn't agree with what we've objectively seen.
