If you look at the true costs of all of the computer items they sold, my
impression was that they made a mint on all of them. I recall store markups
of around 90% on some items, i.e. cost was $1.10, sell price was $15. I
think they set this high to
A) Steer you to other systems
B) Make as much as they could.
