    Do more people buy it just because it's cheaper? Would you buy it for 99$ instead of 391$? - and be honest.
    i think the retail / OEM "barrier ... needs to be re-thought.

    ie - Windows at Staples = 499$
    but everyone knows its really $299
    ..or even way less for premium

    This is done to make OEMs not lose sales to upgraders / build your own crowd.

    I think windows sold more - when it was on shelves for 99$  that you could pick up.Ive read that windows is really around 60$ for one machine.  so... sell THAT! everywhere!
