That's more to do with the weak dollar than anything. That same deal would cost you about $110 dollars at the rates of three or four years ago.

Didn't they stop using Thompson drives ages ago?

Hrm. I modded a guys box the other day which he bought the day I did it, that had a thompson drive in it.

While we're on the subject. Can someone link me to a page specifying what drives play what? I know how to identify the drives, but I forgot which drive would play CD-Rs, which don't, etc. I googled but came up with nothing, maybe I just suck at googling.

I didn't mean that it's not a good deal for you guys. I'm just saying, Kenichi isn't really missing out on some kind of killer deal becuase if he got it, it would cost him $138 US.

Actually a great deal of English people, spell the term as, "no" instead of "know"
