Vista price goof

I was reading my school's paper earlier, and I noticed something odd about the price range they listed.

From the article:
"Several editions of Windows Vista like Ultimate, Home Premium and Home Basic, are available at Best Buy, Haulpain said. Prices vary from $500-$2,000."

or, if you prefer:

Obviously, it's a typo of sorts, but I found it funny nonetheless.
I hope you guys enjoy it, too.

that is very funny, I wonder how they came up with that range... 500-2000$, That is weird, but maybe they are talking about the computer with vista. I have no idea.
