When the A700 was being cleared from Best Buy a few years back at just over $700 people thought that the stores were taking a loss. They were not. Best Buy still made money just not the typical margin. People overestimate the cost to resellers as well as the cost to produce.

BTW, how do you know that Best Buy "still made money"?

I had a nephew that worked for Best Buy at the time. He set two A700's aside for me. One I still have and the other sold on eBay for about $900. Their cost on an A700 4 years ago was $595 so again Best Buy did not lose money by gutting their Sony A700's.
