They can raise them but not lower them? (introduction vs. production release)...extreme form of 'b' stock....? ....I am sure you will be able to get one at $500 within a year, brand new...whether from them or a retailer. Of course if they release them at $500 that would be a great price-point.
I know they have lowered some prices in the past, I don't remember the exact reason, could have been an 'extreme form' (whatever that is) of B stock. Agree, it was an exception not a rule.
