Apple 15" Macbook Pro, made by slaves. Base configuration w 4gb, $1,799, comes with 500gb 5400 RPM hard drive, $150 to get 7200 rpm drive -- 750gb only option.
HP Pavilion $854 base configuration with i7, 6gb and graphics card. Upgrade from 500gb 5400rpm drive to 750gb 7200rpm drive is $20
Apple charges $150 for the exact same drive upgrade as HP charges $20.
I guess both are made by slaves.

The difference between Apple and HP is that Apple has a program in place to prevent worker abuse. HP uses the same subcontractors, and has no such program.
