check the source, it was a one day offer...

now its back at $249, with the windows version at $299 (after a $20 
instant rebate).

do note however that the windows one have 8GB SSD, while the linux one 
have 4GB...

but a funny little something, the linux one can have 16, 32 or 64GB via 
the customize option, the windows one stops at 16GB...

heh, funny enough the windows and linux mini12 seems equally spec-ed, 
but with the linux one some $35 cheaper...

color me confused...
