Non-fiction book prices

This is my first post here, so I'm sorry if it is a little off the wall. A co-worker has a Kindle and just seeing it has gotten my attention. I am currently using my Eee PC as my e-reader and just about everything else I do away from work. I've read all the reviews and I the main thing holding me back is non-fiction book prices. Fiction are mostly less than $10, but technical books are only a couple of $ less than paper price. I have a wall of computer books in my office that I would hate to lose! However, I have gotten to the point that I have to really need/want a computer book at $50+ to buy it. If the electronic versions on the Kindle were $10 or $15 I would have already bought a Kindle and a bunch of technical e-books. I guess enough are selling that there is no incentive to lower the prices.

Anybody have an explaination of the difference in the price of Fiction eBooks vs. technical eBooks?
