    Lucky I got mine while demand was down :cool:
    Still didn't feel cheap lol
    all the same it's like real estate when everyone's buyin' it's gonna be a seller's market again! Simple economics - they need to study their supply and demand curves :-*

    ;) If it means more jobs (and it should), I am all for it.

    "Cut-throat competition" has been going on in the industry since it began. It's not likely to go away anytime soon, so don't be too worried about PC prices, unless M$ has something in mind...
