Respectfully, still not buying into that as an explanation for such a HUGE price difference. Not looking for an argument, just my opinion. Just for fun, here's a "switch" I can get for $449 that does one or two other things as well (yes, I know it's a refurb, but still...).
I think I may have been wrong once or twice in my life, so I'll go ahead and assume this might be the third time. ;-)
