LOL. Probably because they have to mess with the line and don't make as many... results in slightly higher unit costs.
What I don't understand is that the one for $157 sounds like it's a retail IDE with a 10PK of 24X CDRW's.... which is cheaper than a regular retail drive. Dunno about that one. Seems like .com business logic to me... sell a more expensive bundle for less.
So John... is it worth pre-ordering?
FYI Sparco has a solid resellerrating but seems to rape you for shipping charges. Newegg ships comparable stuff for 2/3 the price.
