    Is there any reason why this kit is so expensive? I understand the 4 year warranty, but $1,608 for some of the computer's specs seems outlandish for my reasoning.

    Edit: I am purchasing it regardless

    Consider it cheaper than tuition.

    About 9 threads down there is one regarding the laptop. Current users weigh in on what you are paying for and the pros/cons of it. Good info there.

    Really makes no difference (answers and these related discussions) - it is what it is and you basically need to buy it regardless, as noted it is generally much cheaper than tuition even at a community college... welcome to the KP family and enjoy the wonderful cuisine at Delano the next four years... it's especially wonderful after sea year if you have the good fortune to sail on a vessel that is a "good feeder" with a good steward.
