3k wtf is with Apple pricing these days,
Recently they released headphones that are 550 while the best competitors were around 300
They literally charge such a huge premium on all their devices and all of them sell like hot cakes

remember this is a company that sells a monitor stand for $999.

at $3,000 this will sell like crazy. it's Apple...and for some people that's a status symbol.
Those who view Apple as a status symbol have got to be mentally retarded. Anyone can afford an iPhone, it's not anymore expensive than a better Android for instance. But they do have a bunch of sheep that'll buy any and everything they put out, without any research or knowledge on the device.

8k is retarded for a flat screen but for VR it's probably amazing.
It'll be inevitably on a flat-screen though. My issue is not that it's on a flat-screen, it's that the hardware requirements will be incredibly high.

And apple products, especially computers, are incredibly weak.
