I'd rather not pay for it unless its in stock. You might not get your money back.

Did it ever occur to you that a business isn't a charity?? If he can find people foolish enough to pay those prices, more power to him.

If ya just by golly gotta have it right f##king now, you're gonna pay. Wait 6-9 months and you can get it at normal price. Panic drives high prices.
