I have yet to find a laptop in the same category as my MacBook that
matches up hardware-wise and price-wise.  The XPS I mentione earlier
is the closest, and still doesn't quite get there.  For higher end
systems (MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, etc.) I can see your point, as I could
easily build a Desktop that will perform with a Mac Pro for much less
than the $3000 price tag they carry.  But I haven't seen anything in
the MacBook class that matches it and believe me, I have looked.
