I had an old Toshiba 3109 and it was annoying not being able to play CD-R and CD-RW, plus I wanted DVD-A capability. I paid $380 Cdn. which is roughly $230 - $240 USD, hopefully I didn't pay too much, but I couldn't wait and I figured I'd have to wait for months or run all over town to get it cheaper. What did others pay? Hoping no one says $170 USD or something like that!
