The Aussie Dollar is riding high right now, one Dollar buys 80 US cents. Let's see, US$179 is AU$225.
The chap at cnx-software has looked at it:
Apparently there is an "Ubuntu edition" in the works.
Comments:Mele PCG35 price down again Posted on 4 Aug 2017, 15:27 by admin
I told "cnxsoft", the chap who runs cnx-software.com, about this price-hike, and he replied that Mele put the price up and down, often on weekends they bring the price down again.
So, I sent a message to Mele, via the Aliexpress message board, asking if I can buy it at the lower price. Hey, they just about immediately lowered it again, and replied to me that I can buy it at the lower price.
Sometimes, it pays to ask!
