    I want the silver version of course...

    Black Zalman ZC-N1000 cooler with Free ship here:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...ickDeals&cm_mmc=AFC-SlickDeals-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA

    Silver Zalman ZM-N1000 with $9.39 ship here:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834998052

    I think the silver would look better. That's my only reasoning. Yes, I'm bitching. It's the same damn product. Why does one have free ship while the other does not.

    That's my exact laptop with the silver. Black would be a little off, but it wouldn't be horrible.

    If the price was different because of supply and demand, I could understand. On the contrary, this is just shipping!

    it could still be supply and demand. maybe they are trying to raise the demand of the black one or maybe giving free shipping on the silver would end up costing them more money than they'd like to lose.

    just a guess

    judging from that,... the black model was in one of newegg's promo emails where it includes a promo code to avail free shipping.

    forward today,... newegg's system simply included the free shipping discount on that specific item without the need of the promo code.

    and since the code is item specific,... the discount should only apply to the black, not the silver.

    I thought I posted. Would you guys still buy the silver and pay the shipping with my lappy? The silver just goes so much better. But, I'm thinking about just getting the black one with free ship.
