    Ok, look at this, this is a tablet I'm looking at getting:

    ASUS ME301T-A1-BL Tablet NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.20GHz 10.1" 1GB DDR3 Memory 16GB - Black for Android | GameStop

    150 bucks, awesome, right? Also, this is brand new, I've seen them in several Gamestops by me. Now, here's the EXACT SAME tablet, released at the same time, just in white:


    Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10.1 inch Tablet with 16GB Memory ME301T-A1-WH - Best Buy

    Whats hysterical is that I can find it listed for 300 or so, under the white or blue versions, but apparently, the black version is damn near extinct. So, I'm wondering why the hell some places aren't willing to price match, when it is LITERALLY the same device, released at the same time, just different color?

    For a price match most retailers will only do it for the exact same model number.

    "ME301T-A1-BL" and "ME301T-A1-WH" are technically different models. Some manufacturers will even release the same product under a different model name to different retailers.

    Still funny that I can't find the black version of this bloody tablet I think anywhere, everywhere but Gamestop they have the blue and white versions.
