Is the iPad as remarkable a deal as Steve Jobs would have us believe? VoucherCodes UK took the time to do the math and sort it all out for us. Taking a look at their work ...carry the two, adjust for the reality distortion field and inflation... and the answer is a resounding 'yes.'
The deal and coupon-grubbing website found that if you were to adjust the 1976 purchase price of the Apple I to account for inflation, you'd end up with a 2010 price tag to the tune of $2,540.07.
If that seems like a reasonable price to pay for a Woz and Jobs garage built special, then try this one on for size: If you wanted to fork over for a new Apple Lisa in today's dollars, you'd be laying out $21,744.85! At that cost, you'd want to hope the machine would be able to launch missiles, tuck you in at night, and make you toast in the morning. For those of you keeping track, for the cost of one Apple Lisa would allow for the purchase of a stack of 43 iPads.
VoucherCodes UK's list of price adjusted Apple gear is substantial and worth a once-over. If nothing else, you might be able to use the data to lull your significant other into seeing what a great deal the purchase of an iPad really is.
