Most Expensive Apple Laptop Purchase?

Today I saw an RFP on GSA eBuy for a single Apple MacBook Pro. I wonder how much the RFP, bid evaluation, and award will cost for this commodity item. How many vendors will respond? Does USDA not have a more efficient way to purchase this hardware? Here are the details: RFQ ID: RFQ555223 Reference #: 555223 RFQ Title: Apple Computer Category: 70: 132 32 RFQ Issue Date: 03/30/2011 04:14:28 PM EDT Contact: SHERI MARCELO Department of Agriculture RFQ Close Date: 04/05/2011 03:00:00 PM EDT (Time Remaining: 4D 22H 48M) Delivery: Deliver 30 Days From Date of Award to Date of Completion Description: Specifications: 15-inch: 2.2 GHz Model: MC723LL Part number: Z0M1 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display Backlit Keyboard (English)& User's Guide AppleCare Protection Plan for MacBook Pro Part numb
