Honda sells a special edition motorcycle (CBR1000RR Repsol edition) for $1000 more than the original, even though the only difference is the color of the plastics and rims. You can buy the plastics from Honda separately for $500, and pay a local shop $100 to paint the rims. GM isn't the only one who charges more for a special edition when it can be had for cheaper some other way.

I liked Vista just fine. The basic version came installed on my laptop. But I wanted Windows Media Center to connect to my Xbox, so I downloaded the RC of 7. And honestly, the only difference I've noticed is the ability to change the background at time intervals. I didn't think Vista was bad (way more stable than XP on my desktop), and I don't think 7 is anything impressive. What am I missing?
