If it costs $100 to produce the $100 laptop and it costs $400 to produce a $400 laptop... then if my math is correct... that would be around $300 less expensive... (I don't have a calculator handy right now)... shipping the $100 laptop would probably cost about the same unless it weighs a few tons more than the $400 laptop (I'm lousy with measurements... I'm not sure if the weight of laptops is measured in tons or milliwatts)... so I think the $400 laptop is still more expensive...
Unless you want the $100 laptop in black... that incurs a $1200 service charge and you have to shave your pubes with that option... but on the other hand you get a free printer... so it's still not a total loss.
