    You can purchase it through the System Builders channel from online stores such as newegg.com.

    I purchased mine from ewiz.... best deal at the time, don't know about now... seems shipping is no longer free, but now shipping $10 and the product is $163... so $173.  Might be good to go with newegg and get the fast shipping... ewiz shipping is 7 day... newegg is normally 3 day, and cost $185.  In addition, it took ewiz  a day or two to actually ship my product, where it takes newegg 8 hours (depending on when I purchase).  Depends if saving $12 is worth not having the product for an extra couple of days.  lol

  • Thanks, at last I found a message with an actual "list" of vendors.  Today (12/14/2007) both Ewiz ($164.99) (ground shipping) and NewEgg ($169.99) (3 day shipping) have free shipping.  I will upgrade in early January so the order is going to Ewiz.  erlewis

    When I ordered mine, I was going to purchase from eWiz, but I called NewEgg and they matched the price, so I ordered from them. I buy a lot of stuff from NewEgg and just hate to go elsewhere. Actually what they did was added a $20 credit to my order which dropped the price to $.01 lower than eWiz.
