If you're one of these people who feel that Apple products are overprice, then you need to take a look at the price that Psystar is charging for upgrades to its OpenPro line.

Psystar embraces Apple tax with NVIDIA and Blu-ray offerings
Psystar's upgrade prices are, on the whole, pretty good and follow OEM prices quite closely. But two prices stand out as being well over the top.

First, the price of a Blu-ray drive. From Newegg a 6x Blu-ray bruner will set you back around $230, far less than the $350 price tag it commands from Psystar. Then there the two NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 512MB cards, which from Newegg will set you back $120. Psystar is charging $400 a pair.

It seems that there's money to be made from innovating arounbd Apple products, and it's not just Apple that wants in!

A fully decked-out OpenPro, complete with extended three years parts and support will set you back $3,940.
