well, it's not totally SS. but in korea, there is no concept of rebates. therefore, people pay a buttload of money for electronics. i paid roughly US$13 for a 50 CD spindle.
a regular old computer can set you back $800 (and this ain't no P4 HT).
my friends get so sad to hear how much things cost in korea than in america. hahaha. God bless america.
