Ouch! $550.

Wow, my order, still waiting, from DC was $433. I don't think I'll lose my place in line by trying to order from someplace that says 'In stock' when I lay down my CC and then says 'Back Order' 24hrs later, which BTW is exactly what happened with DC when I placed my order on 10/17.

Good luck to all those who manage to get one quickly... at a decent price of course... pirates...

They do price match, but it needs to be in stock where you match it!
