Because it is.

highest clock speed of the lot, and Intel always charge more for faster chips.

Ask Intel.

The real question is,' Why do people keep buying overpriced CPUs?' If they don't do it, intel won't do it.

If you could sell something with a 300% premium to a satisfied customer, wouldn't you?

Apple on the other hand... takes advantage of the unknowledgeable (like most big computer retailers). And offers the same product for a huge premium (go look up 24" monitors from apple and compare that to newegg's, it'll make you sick). There is a difference there IMO.
