yeah, i realized that later in the day... for some reason, i thought the recent price drop took the elite down to $349. hey! i can dream, cant i? heh heh
i've decided i'm just going to wait for the right moment when i find one in-store and can CONFIRM that i'm getting a jasper. i'm on my 3rd xbox and just tired of getting the less than reliable variety. the jaspers just started shipping to stores in late october so, the longer you wait, the greater the chance you have of getting one.
