I had a look at NCIx prices yestreday, they seem to be getting worse. Dollar has dropped below 0.8.

Brutal markups on most items, never seen anything like it in retail -got a 4870 shipped for $5 with taxes to NS for under 300 all in about 3 months ago, got to be way over 400 now.

Wow...I'm glad I got mine when I did for $525 or whatever it was.

This is brutal! Talk about the dollar tanking hard!
