Even i have to say I'm super tempted by this sadly, I'm actually spending 370 dollars tomorrow for surgery (hernia) (yay 90/10 coverage)
36k? holy crap
average price i've seen (without insurance) seems to be in the 6 to 9K range. (i'm paying 10% of the total bill only) 200ish to the doctor himself and 300ish to the surgery center (there will be another one for the anesthesiologist im sure. Either way, saved my ass!
Back on topic -- while still a great deal, you really have to wonder why MS doesn't offer a stripped down version just to really get market penetration into high gear. Imagine the cost if they offered no software, and no kinect. You'd see these puppies FLYING off the shelf for 250 or 299. I'm not a cheapass when it comes to hardware, but the value has to be there, I already know I wouldn't use it that much so the package deals and bundles don't appeal to me.
Either way -- just got easier for kids to buy one I suppose with the price drop
Good luck with the surgery, and that beats the xbox hot deal. I had one and I know how much they billed my insurance, it was 36K, and the tools for surgery were about half of that. Talk about outrageous pricing.
Don't be a hero like me and try to go to gym 2 weeks after the surgery and fall to the ground and then limp my way to the car, I didn't see gym for a year after that moment. LOL.
That is a damn good deal, too bad I don't get my fat paycheck until the end of the month.
What type of hernia? I watched a show on a hernia in the abdominal area. The doc literally just pushed it back, shoved a mesh in place, and sewed it.
inguinal hernia, I lived with it for a while but I couldn't anymore so I got the surgery done. I still feel in the same area I had surgery, sometimes feels like I am gonan pop it again but hasn't happened yet lol. Been 10 years now. .
Now I hope this deal is back again so I can pull the trigger on it.
