Default Gasp.....A bad Price on Newegg?

does ths seem like a bad deal for newegg? I was just browsing around the refurb section and stubmled upon this, what an insanely high price for an athlon XP! you guys think it may be like a special edition or something? I see nothing special about it that would make the price go up..... heres the link to it..
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...pe=Refurbished

But come on newegg, its not even brand new, $259 US is insanely high for an athlon xp 2800, LOL I think it may be there as a joke or something, it does come with free shipping though. you can buy them brand new off newegg for under 100US, so why buy a refurb at that price?????

He means typo in the price, newegg has done it before. Not a big deal.

hmm maybe it was refurb right when they came out in 2001 and no one has bought it since then and the prices were higher then

they wont just sell it for less than they paid for it. They just overstocked the item and are trying to get rid of it. They will lower the price once they find that no one is buying it.
