You're right, it was like $1070 on EPP, can't remember if that was before or after tax. Amazon wasn't that low though, or I'd have bought it.
Before tax. And you are right also, amazon was not $1000. Camel says lowest was $1129, minus the 2% rewards deal they were running (amazon rewards is a s good as cash to any true SDer), it was just over $1100. But no tax for me, it would have been better than the EPP price because of that (and not taken SO D@MN LONG to ship to me either, lol).
The true deal (for my needs) that I let pass by was the P60ST50 from EPP for $1375 ... sigh. That price I remember VERY clearly
