We Nickel and Dime You to Death 

Pricing - 2 Cents

Rumor has it the Microsoft Surface Tablet will launch at the end of October for $199. That means every unit sold would be a loss for Microsoft; they'd hope to make up the difference in sales of other things (apps, etc.). The same is done with Xbox and games, and I believe often with printers and ink (I think Kodak was trying to go the other way and failed - to charge more for the printer and less for the ink, which over the long run would be cheaper for consumers... but we're stupid).
