    i like the "Pro" as it isn't loaded with crap RGB and unnecessary features.
    if i want an M.2 PCIe expansion card i can buy it cheaper than the price differential between models.

    tldr; warning - weird geopolitical rant

    if ever there was a need for east Asian manufacturers to produce, it's now.
    what they're doing is absolutely shameful as what this price increase is, is exactly the same that wealthy individuals do worldwide - put their money in the Dollar as a "safe harbor" in bad (economic) weather.
    i mean this has been going on since the turn of the 20th century, but rarely have i seen manufacturers pull it. and i'm an American.
    usually i see the reverse, taking that American equity and using it to force multiply off shore investments. after all, when the U.S. (& European) steel industry went under to Japanese and South Korean government sponsored imports the (former) stockholders made money with their "Asian Fund" money-market investments.
    likewise the US involvement with the infrastructure of the electronics industry. luckily Americans have the high end (and the patents) of the electronics industry, but the middle ground is an absolute battlefield.
    i guess it runs in the Taiwanese DNA (world's largest currency reserves) but i really don't like it. what i do like is the schadenfreude with China as their currency is crap right now and they get a taste of what it's like to be an American (& European) exporter under bad exchange rates.
