That's about a 7% premium on the set.  But $225 would be a 56% premium 
on a $400 36-inch TV.

Assume a more than 50% drop in the next year.  $100 would be a 56% 
premium on a $180 27-inch TV.

Assume another 75% drop by July 2007.  $25 would be a 38% premium on a 
$70 13-inch TV.

Of course, the $180 and $70 figures assume no drop in those prices.
