Amazon just lowered it tonight to @1220.55...this morning it was $1299.
I bought this today.
Im thinking this has to be a price mistake because J&R are selling the same machine (open box) for 1199.50, which is 20 bucks more expensive than buying a new one
For those interested...here is the open box version
Also , if anyone is interested you can try to price match this site (which has it for 875.93, but they wouldn't go for it as they are not an "authorized dealer" : click here
Still a good deal IMHO
Go easy as this is my first post.
FYI this model actually has a full sized hdmi port even tho it says micro-hdmi
