Yupe ... not to mention you got the bragging right of having the fastest (non overclocked) chip available ... $1k for some people is nothing ... even though their computer ended up just used for word processing and (porn) surfing ... :P
As for those who think the price is just excessive, again you must consider how much these companies are putting in R&D (already mentioned by some poster) and charging these exhorbitant prices is one of the way they can try to recoup the loss as quick as possible and help their cash flow to fund the next round of R&D.
