I have a current spreadsheet here, and trust me your math went wrong  
somewhere.  A completely full chassis is only a bit more than what you  
are quoting (at list) and the chassis itself is practically free.

But no, I'm not going to redo the math.  I'm not a F10 salesperson and  
I have much more important things to do right now.  (not trying to be  
rude, just seriously...)
