This, and particularly with electronics, a number are produced that look identical to models you see in current production, but missing some bells and whistles to save cost. Less HDMI ports, an inferior graphics engine. Things the average consumer won't really notice until they have the item at home.
We were talking about this around the Thanksgiving dinner table, actually. It is amazing how the average consumer is clueless to technology specifics, gets a buzz word in their head and that's all they know. "Yeah, this one is HD and it's an LCD HD TV, cool." Then folks buy whatever they think looks good because it's cheap, but did they really get a deal? Likely not. At least with Computing and Mobile tech, HH has your back.

Yes. Most mark up and THEN mark down.
Dave_HH:HH has your back.
That's true, and we like it too!
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Yeah, my brother-in-law was sitting at the table with his i-Pad searching thru Black Friday ads for TVs and talking about all the "good" deals. Every time he mentioned one, I'd say, "You'd be better off duck-taping an etch-a-sketch to a poster board and back-lighting it with a compact fluorescent bulb...for energy efficiency"
And then you have some truly good discounts like Bioshock triple pack for $15. Sure their incremental cost is nothing, but between bandwidth, sunk costs, and license fees, that's pretty damn cheap.
True but that's more of an online thing and Cyber Monday deals are probably way better... of course I'm biased with that. ;)
