The prices are way too high for anyone to actually afford to get one.  I would never pay $4000 for something that can't 
even do everything my $80 laptop can do.  Mine even talks to me.  And thanks to Linux and open-source software, I didn't 
even have t
o pay to get it to talk.  I believe it is time for the price gouging to stop.  People must stop taking advantage of 
people just because they are disabled and some government agencies will give the company the mony so a disabled person 
can get their products.  I think we should write letters to our legislators telling them that enough is enough and that 
the prices for equipment and supplies for disabled people are currently discriminatory against disabled people.  I do 
believe that such discriminatory pricing should be illegal under the ADA, as it ensures that most of the people who need 
special equipment or supples for accessibility are unable to get them.
