Arrow Cool Fan, but $330 is crazy for a 12" fan!!!

I really like this idea & the design but...

You either have to be rich or crazy to pay out $330 for a 12" fan!!!

But then again, the original IBM PC with 64K memory and a single floppy drive was $3000 when it was introduced.

I bet they're flying off the shelves in these times of economic hardship and doubt. Cheap at thrice the price!
