~US$80 is what both sites are showing for the screens. Plus shipping, 
plus whatever else people can nail me with, brokerage, etc.

Wrong X.

Factory Direct, CDN$219.99 -> CDN$248.59. Ooh, and, oh look, they're 
sold out locally. Again. Figures.

With CDN dropping, no par anymore, US$80 -> CDN$100.

So X <= ~$CDN$150, where X = time, time without it, and aggravation.
