Why NEWEGG sell White jetBook $100 cheaper than Black jetBook?

I just checked newegg.com website and see that Newegg sell White jetBook $100 cheaper than Black jetBook (they sell it for $199.99). As I know there are no any difference - just color (I have Black jetBook and my wife has white jetBook).
Do you have any ideas why White jetBook costs $100 cheaper?

Weird. The Canadian newegg sells them both for the same price, 259.99$CAN, about the cost of the white one you mention. Maybe the black ones were selling much better and they want to get rid of some white ones.

Actually $199 US is only about $225 CDN. And when you factor in tax and shipping (shipping is free on the US site) the CDN total comes out to about $305. However I agree with you about your reason for only selling the white. I would definitely choose the black over the white and I can only assume that a lot of other people would as well so they probably have stacks of white ones lying around.

Just a guess but I think the white ones are left over stock from when they were selling ALL of them for $199. And as soon as they sell off that stock the white ones will be $299 too.

Yes, you are right. I can't see any other reasons because white jetBook works the same way as black one. No any difference.

good call wodin, i would definitely agree with that

i think the white one looks really nice too and maybe they're overstocked on it but other than that i see no reason that after this offer is over it's prob gonna go back to their normal prices.
