I believe that the price of the VDX is still $249, and is $199 when combined with a $50 rebate. Correct? Therefore, the VDX is now $40 more than the IIIxe. However, someone did mention that the VDX had a list of $199 at Target, but I don't know if that has been confirmed. That would bring the VDX to $149 after a $50 rebate.
