I am sorry, but I can't understand why you folks are even considering these AW machines at these prices, or the prices that they WERE at???

You know what? YOu can't blame this huge increase on the canadian dollar; the dollar has been fluctuating between 0.74 and 0.75 for weeks (months) now, and that's only a 50$ difference in the final price.
When the Radeon 9700 comes out, if there's another 200$ US price increase on top of that, no question, I'm buying elsewhere. Because then we'll be talking a 600-700$ price hike from that it was 3 days ago, I just can't afford these constant price hikes!!!!

Alienware desktops are hot right now and the parts they use to make them are getting scarce. Thats why you see limited avaiablity all over the place.
