I am so sorry to hear that, you have my sincere condolences. It is never good to see a child move to the dark side. With that out of the way, I do think the price will go down at some point. Until then I think the price is fine. How much would you pay to have super fast and easy internet when ever you want it?I tried to convince my daughter to get one of these instead of a mac, no luck though. I agree, they should be about 25% cheaper.
