Apple should be selling them for $499 or less - who cares if the developers have them in the end? - it's just a PC.

Sorry, but that's just wrong. If they had to ramp up a PCB (printed circuit board) production line somewhere to build these things, the cost would be enormous. Bear in mind this cost is going to be shared across what, a few hundred prototypes? At most.

Prototype machines like this are ENORMOUSLY expensive. I believe the prototype Macs typically tested internally are valued at some tens of thousands of dollars.
