This pricing is funny. When it was ~$24 at xmas it was an awesome deal. Then the price started going up. IIRC, it went FP instantly at a ridiculous $42 here and people started crying foul on the mods - especially when a mod posts the deal. I'm all for the web site making money (it's only fair) but do it being true to the community.
Right now the price is more reasonable, and it is more FP worthy than it has been in a while. Between the frequent sales and the demand being blown out it seems like SD might be getting tired of it.
Overall, I think it's a good exercise in price elasticity. Obviously Lenovo has seen sales drop, so they have been lowering the price to maximize volume and revenue. The economist in me loves this stuff.
I am going to order a few, anyway. A friend wants some and he is overseas.
For those who are buying, availability tends to be spotty. It's not infrequent to wait weeks for it to arrive.
I have two purchased separately, all from SD posts. I give this a BUY rating at anything under 38.00 dollars shipped. I really enjoy the trackball usage for my HTPC's, would love a middle button for scrolling though and find the keys a bit small (and I'm not a gorilla hands kinda person). My 2 cents... not that you asked.
